I installed ZAP a few months ago...
Long story short - I uninstalled it...

Now, I can not ping my laptop (other than locally).

Is there something left behind or some setting adjustment that doesn't get restored?
OR
Is there a way to easily make myself 'pingable' again...??

hello Neal

youp pulling ZA out can be a pain

see if any of the following are resident

vsdata.dll
vsdata95.vxd
vsdatant.sys
vsmon.*
vsmonapi.dll
vsnetutils.dll
vspubapi.dll
vsutil.dll
zaplus.*
zapro.*
zllictbl.dat
zlparser.dll
zonealarm.exe

you might need to search your reg too in case there are any pointers in there (have hidden files folders turned on, some of the above will be flagged system)

sunray- nope...disabled. :D

Pete - vsdata.dll & vsdatant.sys were the only two.  I'll reboot in a bit and see if that did it (neither gave any complaints when I renamed them tho)

sirbounty, I agree with Pete that there are a lot of problems uninstalling zonealarm, most things will be restored by just running the winsock fix: http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe

Yeah, the definitive answer is upgrade it to pro then uninstall, that seems to be the general opinion on the official ZA discussion forum, I admit its a pig to get rid off but I wont use anything else (exept PIX of course)

Duh - didn't even think of the winsock fix... :(
But, today's "Kona" day in the cafe and I don't really care for Kona...
It just doesn't wake me up quite like the Columbian Supremo. ;)

Thanx gang...I've got an intensive audit running now...will try the fixes and reboot shortly.

If you're using Windows XP, check the native personal firewall isn't configured to block incoming traffic !
