  • unwanted SandBlastBackup file in 'C Drive'

    I have Zonealarm Free Firewall installed on Win. 10. I noticed a file with 'hidden' attribute in my local C Drive last week. The file is 'SandBlastBackup'. I found documents I shredded in April appear in this file. I tried to remove or delete these should-be-shred documents but errors came up saying that I need administrator permission to do it. After clicking 'yes', the pop up screen stills says 'you need administrator permission'.

    Question 1,
    How come this set of backup related to the firewall software installed without me knowing?

    Question 2,
    How can I remove the backuped documents in the file C:\SandBlastBackup?

    Question 3,
    How do I prevent this function installed again after removing it while only keep the free firewall?
