    Unhappy zonealarm free firewall & AVG 9 fails alltogether

    firstly i have been a longtime ZA Free Firewall user
    i have been having a problem with
    zonealarm 9.1.007.002

    ----details-------
    Internet:
    telstra broadband wireless
    pc details:
    windows xp professional sp3
    security programs installed along with zonealarm free
    are AVG Free
    and Malwarebytes anti-malware.
    (had been fine working along with zonealarm,
    and if you are wondering about compatability my sis has all these 3 working together on her laptop and she has no troubles except for my PC of course.)

    it has come up in the last past weeks that i could not my access internet connection graduly until i got feed up and done some investigating and found zonealarm was really acting up

    some sites i could access like google search
    but most of any other sites i tried to load with differant browsers
    firefox ,ie and google chrome but i still couldnt access other sites, all my ZAFFW (za free firewall) program settings were fine but i just couldnt figure whats going on so i uninstalled it and used the windows firewall to use internet it works fine
    So
    i reinstalled zafw and tried again same thing again internet access was so poor so i got feed up and used cpes_clean to remove zaffw and tried my windows firewall again fine.
    reinstalled zaffw and same again almost no internet access execpt for google and a small hand full of sites.
    so then i turned off zonelarm firewall by sliders
    still not much internet access
    checked my za program settings fine
    so i finally uninstalled zaffw
    and im currently using pctools firewall plus at moment to keep me secure.

    but what is happening to zonealarm free firewall
    to play up so much?

    ive scanned for viruses and rootkits and heaps of other solutions but none prevail
    this is a very anoyying mater.
    what could it be?

    is there anything better to remove all ZAFFW Traces so i can reinstall it clean? (like previous cpes_clean ive tried and it didnt make a differance)

    so help id like to get zaffw going again.

    Hi!

    There is a problem introduced by the latest AVG update, install the old one and everything will be back to normal.

    How long do i have to wait before either company avg or za releases a patch to counter this?

    and if this is a bug with avg why is my sis's laptop working fine with zaffw and avg together and avg free is always updated?

    Sorry, We are All users here, so have no Idea when a Fix will be available..

    Maybe your Sister should be asked how she did what she did to make both work with each other..

    There is a beta version of the free firewall available you might want to consider trying.

    bubbad,
    Latest version of AVG v 9.0.790 updated on Mar 10, 2010. Do all versions of AVG, za free firewall and MBAM match exactly on your computer and your sister's?
    Have you tried uninstalling all three AVG, za free firewall and MBAM and doing a clean install of everything, starting with za free firewall, then installing AVG and MBAM? Have you tried using Revo Uninstaller? The last free version is here Usually it is enough to just use Add/Remove from Control Panel and running Zone Alarm Removal tool.

    ZoneAlarm & AVG 9.0 Free Incompatible
    ZoneAlarm has been working with AVG to resolve this issue.

    We have a new Free ZA beta version which has fixed this issue with AVG.

    You can download the beta from:
