    1. Open your control panel select the Add remove programs / Program and Features

    2. If any of the following have been installed, uninstall them.
    - ZoneAlarm
    - ZoneAlarm toolbar
    - Do Not Track

    3. Download and run our clean up utility from:

    4. Download the previous version of Free ZA and install:

    The error 1603 may point to some corruption/permission/damage in the OS this may only be fixed by starting clean. OS clean-up/format. See for example here:

    I would personally try to restore the OS to a restore point previous to any attempt of installing ZA. Then I would first fully remove the old version (including using the ZA removal tool - clean.exe), reboot, turn on VISTA firewall, re-download the ZAfree installer and try again.

    If the above fails then I am not sure what to suggest other than OS reinstall or shifting to a firewall that works on the system and most of all is fully up-to-date.
