Here's something that is likely to help you. At least I hope so. Zonelabs is a common company that manufactures computer utilities. One of the more popular of those programs is ZoneAlarm, a firewall that can be used on any computer. Here's how to go about fixing the problem:

1. Check your file for any products listed on this website: http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp

2. Once you have discovered what the program is that you have installed from this company, reinstall the program. It would be best to uninstall the program first. Doing a reinstall will replace the missing file and all should be fine.

I cannot guarantee that this solution will work but in my many years of computer experience, I have experienced missing or corrupted files myself. Usually this problem is resolved by figuring out which program is associated with the missing or corrupted file and then reinstalling that program. However, I will tell you beforehand that there are some cases in which merely downloading the file and putting it in the correct directory will work. However, this requires slightly more expertise in this area and I do not recommend this unless the program no longer exists on the computer. Hope this helps.

You have someone else go online on a different computer or you go online on a different computer, download the installation file for ZoneAlarm and then burn the installation file to a CD-R or a CD-RW. Take the CD-R or CD-RW to your computer and reinstall the ZoneAlarm.

Anyway, why can't you go online? I suppose that ZoneAlarm is preventing you from connecting right? If so, there is a way where you can open up ZoneAlarm and go to the place where it lists the programs and find your ISP and then make sure that ZoneAlarm is set to allow it to connect to the Internet. I don't have ZoneAlarm anymore so I can't give you specific instructions as I don't remember what everything is like in ZoneAlarm. Also, I'm pretty sure there is a way to manually add programs to the list in ZoneAlarm and you may have to manually add your ISP's program so that you can connect to the Internet. If you can get that working then you should be able to go online and download ZoneAlarm. Also, another option would be to uninstall ZoneAlarm and see if that lets you go online. This is of course assuming that the reason you can't go online is because ZoneAlarm is preventing you from going online. Hope this helps!
