Thread: Incompatibility between McAfee Enterprise version 8 and ZA Pro

    Default Incompatibility between McAfee Enterprise version 8 and ZA Pro

    Hi,

    This may be of interest to all members of this forum.

    If you have McAfee ant-virus Enterprise version 8, you can install neither ZASS (since two anti-virus are incompatible) NOR ZA Pro (i.e. Zone Alarm without antivirus) sine this is what I found on McAfee installation notes:

    These third party products are not compatible with the Buffer Overflow feature of VirusScan Enterprise 8.0. If you find it necessary to use these products, we recommend that you disable the VirusScan Enterprise Buffer Overflow feature:
    - Tiny Personal Firewall
    - CyberArmour Firewall
    - Zone Alarm Pro

    NOTE:
    When VirusScan Enterprise 8.0 and Zone Alarm Pro are both installed on the same computer, Zone Alarm Pro crashes.

    So, this lloks as a severe warning !
