    Double firewalls lead to issues and problems. Both are trying to access the same files and do the same paths at the same time and this leads to delays, stalls and often errors (something may by pass both instead of getting stopped by just either one).
    The ZA by default is designed to turn off the windows firewall. (open the Advanced of the Firewall of the ZA).

    Want another firewall for the PC? Then get a cheap router. It does a SPI and NAT for a firewall and if properly setup, it is very hard to beat.
    Plus it does not use any PC resources and can not be infected with a virus or malware. Also it can log all activity for a traffic reference if ever needed. The router will stealth all ports and keep all ports closed at all times.
