your section on ZoneAlarm Search Removal does not work

but i found a better way
in firefox type about:config
search on the word 'zone'
reset all the values to nothing by right clicking on reset for each value with zonealarm in it

it works and resets the search to google in the address bar

I imagine Zone alarm will have settings or procedures for disabling or uninstalling that feature. Have you tried their support site ?

Thanks but none of these links solve my problem. I use Firefox and when I click to open a new tab the Zone Alarm search window comes up !

And the Conduit Toolbar uninstaller didn't remove that toolbar?

Kinda crappy that a "supposed" security program installs Malware! Might make a person wonder how good the basic product is.

I haven't tried uninstalling the security toolbar yet since the main nuisance I find is clicking on the new tab sign and finding the zone alarm logo search window

Hi to the edmeister, I have tried the uninstaller but when I click run, not a thing happens. Any ideas !

Hi to all helpers

I found a way to solve my problem which was to go to add-ons manager in Firefox and told it to remove the ZA security toolbar and that's it. Thanks for all your responses

Thanks for posting back. Glad to hear you fixed the problem, and good to know it is an easily removed or disabled toolbar.
