    Default Zone Alarm Free and MS Service Pack 3

    I use ZoneAlarm Free and had the problems with KB 951748 - now sorted. When I go to the update Zone Alarm listing there is no Free version listed to download although it is mentioned in the products affected above the download list. I have been sent the MS SP3 and am hesitant in installing it in case it causes the same problems as before. Have other users resolved this situation and if so how?? Many thanks

    ps should I have the Windows firewall switched on as well as ZoneAlarm being active??

    Operating system Windows XP home edition
    Zone Alarm 7.0.483.000 registered 8/27/2008

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two software Firewalls at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility or if not available, use the Windows XP add/remove software tool in the control panel.<HR>Just One, Not Two -- Never use two anti-virus products at the same time.

    As GeorgeV has mentioned 7.0.483 is the latest version for ZA Free. And normally when ZA firewall is installed properly, it will automatically 'shut-off' windows firewall - which is the normal setting.<hr>As for SP3 - the problem with KB 951748 is an &quot;isolated incident&quot; specific to that update and has no revelance to SP3 - SP3 is whole new bigger 'security update' which should not cause any problems if you make the right preparations and have read most of the 'advisories and recommendations' for it. Click here &gt; http://forum.zonealarm.org/zonelabs/...ssage.id=18539
    - make sure you take precautions if you have HP/ Compaq. Check with Microsoft home site for more info on SP3.<hr>I will offer you a view into the futrure... the next InternerExplorer 8 - will have major improvements in 'web security' (which is large gapping holes that firefox and others have already taken care of) and 'some' of these security improvements 'will require' SP3 installed; so eventually it would be in your best interest to install SP3 - take your time and read all the advisories ( so far only two - rare esoteric softwares known to Microsoft - are incompatible with SP3 ) Good luck.<hr>:8}NaiveMelody NYC 10-5-08 - Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas

    Hi
    Thanks for your advice and taking the trouble in replying. I was a tad over cautious and had wondered if the troublesome update was somehow included in SP3. Anyway I made a restore point and successfully installed SP3 over the weekend. Thanks again for you advice. Chris

    Same concerns here ... never did get ZA to work with the individual update, so Ikeep ignoring the SP3 ... I'll see if those instructions work ... hope I don't have tothen uninstall the SP3.

    I had the same concerns about the conflict between MS updates andZA ... however, when I downloaded SP3 I had no problem as I didwith the individual MS update... worked here! - thanks for the advice on this.
