    Default I've been wondering, if ZoneAlarm will still work efficie...

    I've been wondering, if ZoneAlarm will still work efficiently if I already have another software installed?

    can I combine the following?
    - Kaspersky Internet Security
    - ZoneAlarm Extreme or Internet Security Suite

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Please note that ZASS does not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled). To troubleshoot ZASS issues remove them and install back once you see that ZA works as it should. For example,Norton/Symantec, McAfee,Spyspweeper, Spyware Doctor, trojan hunter, adware, SpyBotS&amp;D, PC tools Threatfire, otherantivirus, antispyware, Registry Guard or locking tools, etc...Here is a List of the Most common User problems..a.) The first thing a Hacker, Trojan or Virus tries to do if they infect your computer or gain access to your Computer, thru an Email Attachment or pop-up on a Website or user over-ridding the Security alerts by the firewall, is to shutdown, any Firewall, AV/AS.. That is why some users have problems updating ZoneAlarm or any other security program..vsmon.exe/TrueVector is the first thing that loads when your computer starts to boot up, the ZA tray Icon is just a Icon that loads later in the Boot-up process..and TrueVector /vsmon.exe is the last thing to shutdown when your computer shuts down to insure that your computer is always protected..That is why " if Load ZoneAlarm on startup in not Un-checked" and computer Rebooted, Truevector will stay in Memory and will not be removed during Install or Upgrade, in fact the install may fail because Truevector in an attempt to protect your computer will think that the New Install attempt to install a new version of Truevector may be a Hacker Attempting to shut down Truevector..That is why it is very Important to use the Un-Check "Start ZA on Startup" method so that a New Upgrade Copy of TrueVector/vsmon.exe can be installed..b.) some Computer Users think that if one Firewall and anti-Virus is good, two or three different ones running at the same time must be better?

    6.)- have you properly un-installed any previous firewall and/or anti-virus?? = this needs to be done - http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...message.id=154. Most new pc/laptops come with pre-installed security software, which should be properly un-installed prior to installing any ZoneAlarm firewall product. <HR>

    <hr></blockquote>Akela,
    Two security suites?
    You only need one.
    With two, if they even installed
    you would not be &quot;doubling your security&quot; as many people think, but instead jeopardinzing your security.
    More than one firewall installed - both suites have firewalls - are going to fight for resources.
    More than one antivirus - again two antiviruses running are going to conflict.
    You do not mention which suite you are using now?
    or are you comparing the two and trying to decide which one to install?
