ZoneAlarm replaces the TCP stack with it's own.  You cannot fully shut 
it down until after uninstalling it and rebooting.

The most recent version of ZA broke every POP/SMTP mailer on my system. 
  Shutting it down, removing it from start up and rebooting did nothing 
to change that.  Uninstalling it magically fixed everything, and several 
other problems I hadn't attributed to ZoneAlarm as well.
