I want to give my opinion and report that for 5 days I installed Zone Alarm Securty and since 2 days ago when starting the computer, a window appears on the monitor with the following reading:
ZAAR.exe
System Warning.
Unknown Hard Error.
I think it is better to delete this folder or file.
Who is saying it is alarm?
Microsoft Windows 7, 32 bit or Avast antivirus (free)?
And there the Doubt about the particular!!!
