Have you checked that uninstalling ZoneAlarm hasn't enabled Windows

Have you rebooted the system after uninstalling ZoneAlarm?

Did you uninstall ZoneAlarm using the provided uninstaller?

Are you sure you're using the correct IP address when connecting?

You didn't need to re-install VNC.  It's possible that in reinstalling it,
some part of the configuration has been changed, so you probably want to
check that, too.
