    Default Zone Alarm FREE v7 - clash with Kaspersky AV

    Apologies if this has been discussed to death but can anyone tell me why ZA Free has KAV code bundled in but disabled - this clash with Kaspersky is forcing me to make a difficult decision and I don't really want to have to drop Zone Alarm.

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

    Dear indigoz:

    ZAfree is a crippleware version of ZAISS. Even though the antivirus feature is disabled, it still conflicts with other antivirus utilities. You can guess why they did that.

    ZAPRO, which I use, is one of the more(if not most) compatible editions to run. However, it is not free.

    Hope this helps.

    Another option - upgrade to ZoneAlarm Antivirus - would be a nice choice - this comes with ZoneAlarm firewall + anitvirus (by Kaspersky) - simple and fairly easy to use - you getter a better ZA OS firewall than the basic ZA Free firewall - http://www.zonealarm.com/store/conte..._list_zaav.jsp

    Yeah but I have 18 months left to go on my 2 year KAV license! Why should I lose that and switch to a ZA AV product just becasue ZA chose to agressively attack Kasperksy's market? ZA's actions are more likely to drive me away I'm afraid.

    indigoz if you wish to continue using ZA free why not just install an older version that works flawlessly with Kaspersky . 6.1.744.001 will not conflict with your cherished AV

    Thanks to Guru Fax for the following -

    Concerning to:[*]Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 (version 7.0.0.125)[*]Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 (version 7.0.0.125)<ul>[/list][/list]



    Kaspersky Lab s products version 7.0 are not compatible with Zone Alarm Firewall Free because the network driver of Kaspersky Lab embedded into the latter. The driver in its turn is copied into Windows system folder during installation of product version 7.0. That is why during installation of products version 7.0, the system checks if the driver is already installed by Zone Alarm Firewall Free. If an installed driver is detected installation of products version 7.0 is terminated, and the corresponding informative message is displayed on the screen.

    Before installing Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0\ Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 it is recommended to check if Zone Alarm Firewall Free is already installed on your PC. If this product is listed among installed products, you should uninstall Zone Alarm Firewall Free. Concurrent functioning of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0\ Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 and Zone Alarm Firewall Free may result in full inefficiency of your PC.

    Automatic detecting of Zone Alarm Firewall Free will be added in Maintenance Pack 1 (MP1) to Kaspersky Lab s products version 7.0. [ see/click &gt; Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 MP1 (build 7.0.1.321) ]<hr>NaiveMelody NYC 2-3-08 - Back In The USSR - The Beatles
