Using win Xp and had very little trouble with Zone Alarm till now Boots up with prog files\zonealam\ --z\client.exe Validation failed for........alert.zap Rebooted twice and same result I haven,t altered or loaded anything except updated AVG Advice would be appreciated Thank you
I found that AVG and ZoneAlarm didn't run well together and so switched to Avast anti-virus. I've heard, too, that AVG isn't the best anti-virus and anti-spyware software. In fact, I recently uninstalled AVG on my sister's PC and replaced it with Avast and also loaded Spybot R and D. A scan with Spybot brought up 64 examples of spyware.
Thanks chaps I've just reinstalled Z/Alarm and ok at present However I've noticed ahen I've booted up the Z/A Icon is always active for a few seconds showing sending and receiving. This morning when I booted Z/A icon never flickered Might be my imagination but we'll see what happpens next Many thanks
playmofire I don't know who told you this. AVG is as good as AVAST and AVAST is as good as AVG it depends on what YOU prefer. And anti virus programs do not look for spyware, thats what you use a spyware program for. Also no spyware program gets them all. You are better to use 2 spyware programs and hopefully the second one will get what the first one misses.
