PC-cillin 2003 and Zone Alarm

  Brian2 14:34 16 Oct 2003

I have just installed the anti-virus program called PC - cillin 2003 by Trend Micro. I would now loke to install Zone Alarm but before I do I would like to know whether they do the same job or not. Are they compatible and can they run safely together? TIA

i would think they will i have za pro and avg av pc cillin is antivirus protection whereas zone alarm is a firewall intruder attempt warning system, takes a bit of configuring at first with all the alerts etc but when 'trained' is very efficient.

I have experienced problems with running Pc Cillin 2003 with Zone Alarm (Free version) on Windows XP. The system would freeze at random. The problem stopped when I installed the firewall from Trend Micro instead.

The only way you will know if they are compatible on your machine is to install Zone Alarm alongside PC Cillin and see if you experience any compatibility issues.

You can get AVG antivirus which is a free program with regular updates if you click here

Thanks all. As PC-cillin cost me £15 I want to keep it! I will do as Bruce-Lee suggests and get a compatible firewall from Trend. Bruce- do you know the name of the Trend firewll and cost?

If you purchased Pc Cillin 2003 it should come with a built in firewall program so you don't need to make another purchase. This is taken from the Trend site:

PC-cillin 2003

Key Features

Comprehensive Antivirus Protection

Integrated PDA Protection

Personal Firewall Defence Against Hackers

Proactive Virus Outbreak Notification

Secure Wireless Internet Access

Personal Firewall Defence Against Hackers

The integrated firewall has been enhanced to provide precise, thorough checking of Internet traffic to secure your computer from unauthorized intrusion, hacker attacks, and information theft.

Try looking on the cd for the firewall.

I have no problems whatsoever with PC-CILLIN 2003, although i do not use its firewall as it only stops incoming attacks, exactly the same as XP's firewall.

I have sygate firewall click here which is a lot easier to use.

Ensure that that the PC-CILLIN firewall is NOT installed and ensure that the XP firewall is turned off
