    Default Compatability issue between ZA Free Firewall and Macafee Security Suite?

    First I had the error about the msi, finally found the answer to that here in the forum (thank you!) but then when it started downloading I got a message from ZoneAlarm that it is not compatible with MacAfee Security Suite and the download stopped. I just got this new PC and it has the MSS installed. I had no issue adding **bleep** as my antivirus and I really wanted ZA as my firewall. Any fixes?

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
    Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    If I'm reading you right, you've got McAfee Suite(firewall, anti-virus, +)
    pre-installed on a new vista pc and you are trying to install ZA Free firewall &quot;without&quot; first properly un-installing McAfee Suite; just adding another firewall...<hr>Here

    Thanx for your help! My issue was that I had been unable to completely uninstall MacAfee Security Suite and with the tool like was able to and have installed ZoneAlarm now without further issues. Thanx again!
