thinking of installing Avast av & zonealarm firewall is there any conflict issues with these two or any body got any more recomendations

No, they will co-exist happily together, but don't forget to completely get rid of McAfee first as per my earlier post

thanks for your reply off to download them now,
do you have this combination?

I have used ZoneAlarm for many years, and usually AVG. But while the latter was sorting out it's problems earlier in the year I used Avast for a few months. I've now gone back to AVG8.
