"Please wait a moment while we update your software" stays on the screen

If you're noticing that the message "Please wait a moment while we update your software" is appearing every time you start NetZero, this is normal, as the NetZero software periodically updates itself with new content downloaded from the Internet.

If, however, the message does not disappear and take you to the logon screen, it is possible that the software is having trouble updating itself. In this case, you will have to manually start the update program.

  1. Manually install the full version of NetZero

    1. Click on the Windows Start button, point to Find (or Search) and select Files or Folders.
    2. In the Named field, type NetZero.exe
    3. Ensure that the Look in field indicates My Computer.
    4. Click on the Find now button.
    5. You may find more than one NetZero.exe file. Look for the NetZero.exe found in the staging subfolder of your NetZero directory (usually C:\Program Files\NetZero). Double-click this file to run the installation program.

If the problem persists, you may need to uninstall and reinstall NetZero.

  1. Uninstall and reinstall NetZero.

    You should first download a copy of the NetZero install program before you uninstall NetZero from your computer.
