AVG and Zonealarm conflict

  pulteny 20:48 21 Aug 2010

Hi all.
I upgraded to the free version of AVG 9.00 from the older version 8.5.339 and it would not update.Went to their forum and was advised to download a removal tool and then reinstall,tried this two times and then in safe mode no go.Went on the internet and found others had the same problem. It seems there is a conflict between the free versions of AVG and Zonealarm firewall.I also have the Zonealarm tool bar on firefox and internet explorer my OS is Winxp. Eventually reinstalled AVG 8.5 and all is ok.This version up dated its self to 8.5.441 this having been released on 12/07/10.Seems funny to me that a new update released for a old version was avalible.

Any one shed some light on the conflict situation and the new release?

This seems an old problem. If I were you I would ditch ZA in favour of PCTools free firewall, and replace AVG with Avira or MS Security Essentials. (plus SAS and Malawarebytes, and Spywareblaster)
