Conflict between Avast, Zone Alarm and Firefox

  Buchan 35 22:01 21 Apr 2005

Is there any known conflict between these? I keep getting pop-up style warnings that one is trying to join the internet and despite clicking `allow this` it keeps on happening. I also click the `remember this` part as well. If there is any known conflict could some kind person point me in the direction of a quieter life? Thanks in advance.

probably zone alarm causing the problem have you got the latest version?

Unsure whether conflict. Did run the 3 together for a while and found ZA a bit "cluncky".

Now have Avast(Excellent), with Firefox and Sygate Personal Free Firewall. All getting on very well and touch wood no infections.

Thanks stalion and aca, you both confirmed that little inkling in the back of the mind. I`ll sort ZA out. Pity it`s good!!

sorry, yes I have. In the last minute or two I`ve thought of leaving it overnight and waiting to see what happens then.If the worst comes to the worst I`ll offload it and download either Sygate or Kerio.

According to the avast forum, there is an issue click here though this is the first time I've heard of it and the description doesn't appear to fit your problem.
My personal preference is Kerio click here

Thanks for that, it does fit my problem, so maybe when I post something I should describe it better

Hi mate - I had similar problem with ZA - changed to Kerio (also free) though you do get the first 30days trial of the full product, which reverts to the free version at the end of the trial period, no problems since.

Ooops - sorry Buchan 35 .......

That last glass of red has a lot to answer for. I`m on my first right now. `Night mate.

To all who helped here I`ve installed Kerio, and so far no problems. Thanks for the help.
