I just had installed Zone Alarm, and whenever i had rebooted, my pc would just restart again.

So i restarted in Safe Mode and uninstalled

SpySherrif.exe (which i know is rougeware)
ZoneAlarm.exe

and now the problem seems to have gone...

Has anyone else had experiances like this with Zone Alarm in the past? and was it actually Zone Alarm?

Thanks

P.s. didnt know where to put this, but as im on XP :p

SpySherriff is usually installed by Trojans that issue fake security alerts in your Windows taskbar stating that you are infected with a variety of malware.

I think your system may still be infected with some type of malware. Look over the First Steps at Removing Malware , then post a HJT log in the HiJackThisLog Help Forum.

Lets make sure your system is clean before trying to resolve your ZA issue.

I had a problem with ZA myself.

I did a little "Googling" and found out that there is a worm that hides itseld as vsmon.exe

I found out that when a search is done, if the vsmon file is not entitled with "ZoneALarm specifically,than it is possibly a virus.

Just Google vsmon.exe and virus, you'll find all you need about it.
