Thanks! What do you mean by virtual environment? When I installed ZoneAlarm the other day, my PC was shut down showing this message as follows:

"A program has been detected and widows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this this stop error screen, restart your computer.
Technical information:
***STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF8801C8F3B72)
*** vsdatant.sys - address FFFFF8801C8F3B72 base at FFFFF8801C8DD000, Datestamp 4dc387a2"

Since it was my first time to see the error screen, I restarted the PC and uninstalled the Zonealarm. Then I restored the system files using System Restore. Do you have any idea if it was enough? Or do you think I better use some uninstall tool for zonealarm even now? I worry whether the installation of zonealarm changed settings of the other firewall on my PC. (Currently I have been using a commercial FW on this PC.)
