    Default ZoneAlarmPro/Kaspersky incompatibility

    Does anyone have any info on Kaspersky antivirus and ZA Pro being unable to coexist? I see no mention of it here in the forum.
    I just tried to update my AV
    (AV only, not the suite)
    to the 2009 scan engine and it wanted me to uninstall ZA because it said that they are incompatible. I've had no issues with Kaspersky 2008 and ZA. Unbelievable!!!
    Is this conflict really true or is Kaspersky just yanking my chain thinking I'm gonna jump for their firewall?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    YUP.
    Kaspersky wants to be the big dog in the yard.... so uninstall the ZoneAlarm, then install the KAV, and then re-install the ZA Pro. This is should satisfy the KAV's over-bearing posturings.
    And it should work - and be sure to add the vsmon.exe and zlclient.exe of the Zone Alarm to the Trusted Zone of the KAV.
    That is ...if the the KAV still uses trusted, as I have not used any kaspersky products in few years now and use another antiviral software.
