There are different files with the same name:
- "TrueVector" must run at start up. Even if you don't have ZoneAlarm or ZoneAlarm Pro run at start-up you do need this
- "Zone Alarm" definitely not required. Added by the RBOT.BO WORM! If this was the ZoneAlarm firewall the name column would be TrueVector
