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.
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
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.)
