I have AVG free antivirus and also Zone alarm security. Does Zone alarm security include antivirus. If so, does this mean that they might conflict and that I should remove one of them.

Yes

Yes you should definitely remove one

If this is the one you have,click here you will probably have to remove AVG

bremner thank you, before I decide which can you tell me if the AVG7.5 antivirus has its` own firewall? if it does I`ll remove ZA.

buteman thank you. When I installed ZA I was under the impression that I was installing a free antivirus program, not all the rest of the security suite. Its been a pest ever since so I would prefer to keep AVG 7.5 av along with AVG 7.5 Antispyware, which I also have.

Have removed ZA leaving only 1 antivirus and will keep an eye on its performance. Thanks for your replies.
