Does anyone know if there is any known problem using these two applications? I have recently installed ZA and since then (could be a coincidence?) Opera freezes almost instantly and it takes quite an effort to close the programme down.
Use Windows XP and AOL 7 as main browser,
Thanks for any information

I've never had a problem running ZA and Opera together.

What version of opera are you using?

I had problems with Opera and Zonealarm Pro after an update of Zonealarm. Pages wouldn't load, just froze untill I lowered the settings or shut down Zonealarm. I installed Opera 7 and have not had any more problems. If you install Opera 7 you cannot import Opera 6 Bookmarks. If you do you will find that the Bookmarks tab will not function untill you delete the imported bookmarks.

I run these two and have never had a problem, but I do use a very old version of ZoneAlarm which I think much better han later versions which do cause some problems.

In this connection, firewalls don't need updating if they've been well designed in the first place, and ZoneAlarm was one of the best designs of all when it was released..

Sorry about the triple response. Had a connection problem.

For all the above comments-I may try and uninstall/reinstall Opera in the latest version. I am running v 6.0 and I am aware there is a later one.

Thanks again for the input.
