Reg Cleaner to delete a single orphaned entry ...

    I was looking to clear an entry for the Security Center - it seems to think
    that a ZoneAlarm program is still installed and alerts me to let me know that
    it is not started; if I don't have an AV solution installed.

    I wasn't looking to increase performance, but trust me - I will be running
    Erunt and RegOpt (I know I have whitespace (I can see it when I open the
    registry <--- VERY bad joke 8-{>)) - I believe that those are tools everyone
    should have ...

    If someone can point me in the right direction to clear this orphaned entry,
    I would gladly manually delete it rather than use a reg cleaner.

    I will be searching again today ...

    you can always open
    the registry and search
    for the entries manually.

    the search option is
    in the menu bar.

    you can also use programs
    like reg seeker and reg
    scanner to search for
    zone alarm keys.

    If you ever think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted,
    tuned-up, cured, tweaked, or optimized (it doesn't), read
    http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=28099 and draw your own conclusions.

    Why not run the Zone Alarm Removal Tool (this page contains a direct
    link to the tool at the zonealarm.com Web site):

    Another option might be to reinstall it and then re-uninstall it to see what
    happens. Be sure anything that protects it is turned off (some spyware
    detectors, etc.). Haven't used their most current version but never had
    problms with removal.

    What entry in the registry do you believe is responsible for the message.
    I'd be fascinated to know.
