Watch out for ZoneAlarm 5.0 !!

  HariboFan 00:02 13 Jun 2004

Have uninstalled everything that could conflict with it,AVG,Hotsync,Networks etc,etc but still when i install ZoneAlarm 5 (and switch OFF anti-virus)it freezes my computer solid.
Maybe something i am missing but the only way i can get my computer working is to install ZoneAlarm 4.5 and then AVG/update (After a safe start to unintall previous).
I think these may be causing alot of freezing/blue screens that have been reported recently.
Any Patches/Fixes out there !! 00:41 13 Jun 2004

running it with AVG or any other progs.

Just lucky I guess.

No problems with ZA 5 working in line with AVG, Ad-aware6, S and D 1.3 and SpywareBlaster.

It would appear [via other forums] as though some people are having serious problems with ZA5, whilst other people,s computers are running well. I changed over to the new version, and fingers crossed, no problems so far, perhaps I am just lucky with this one.
