Zone alarm/avast conflict?

I'm running ZoneAlarm as a firewall and Avast as antivirus. Had no problems for months, but now everything (startup/internet etc)seems to have slowed down noticeably. I seem to remember getting a "conflict warning" a while back, but can't remember the detail. Just wondered whether anyone knows of such problems?

I have Avast and ZA with no problems,have you checked for nasties?

I too have both ZoneAlarm and Avast running with no problems at all. I am not aware of any conflicts or problems with them running in tandem.

I have just applied the latest update to ZoneAlarm and am now getting the problems yogaman is describing. I too had been using ZoneAlarm and Avast without problem for months.

I downloaded and ran the zlssetup_70_462

Looks like there could be problems?

There appears to be a possible problem with the latest updated version of Zone Alarm, some people have had troubles and reverted back to the previous version, which resolved the problem.

I have both Avast! and ZA (latest version) - there is a warning that there could be a potential clash when updating ZA and you can choose to disable some transparency feature (in Avast!?)

Can't remember the exact wording, but I've had no conflicts during two or three years of using both together.

It appears to be the ZoneAlarm SpyBlocker toolbar causing the slowdown. Why I don't know, but I backed out to the previous version and then updated choosing not to install the toolbar.

Thanks to all who replied - will try to revert back to the "old" version & see if there's any improvement.
