    Default Extreme Security - Turning off AV

    If I install Extreme Security can I turn off anti-virus in ZA, as I have Kaspersky? It says its a "unified engine" which makes me wary I could turn it off.

    No, if you don't want to use the Kaspersky Anti-virus that is included with ZA Extreme, then you should Uninstall ZA Extreme and install ZA Free or ZA Pro that do not have Anti-Virus included..

    *** NOTICE: Please note that ZAAV, ZASS and ZAXS do not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled).

    *** For example, the Following programs may not work well with ZoneAlarm AV/AS/Extreme: Kaspersky (KAV) or (KISS),Norton/Symantec, McAfee,AVG, Spysweeper, NOD32, Spyware Doctor, trojan hunter, adware, SpyBotSearch & Destroy, PC tools Threat Fire, any other Anti-virus program, some Anti-spyware programs, Registry Guard or Registry locking tools, etc...

    Well I installed ZA Pro (did not have Extreme on the PC). Now everytime I open go to a web page Kaspersky messages me: "Behavior similar to PDM.Invader detected."

    This just began happening after the install of ZA Pro.

    You need to exclude ZAPro executables from kaspersky check. This includes zlclient.exe, vsmon.exe and probably the files linked to the toolbar
    You may need to contact Kaspersky to know why kasperky does this...

    Already excluded the executables. But not vsmon.exe. Is that a ZA specific? I thought that was a windows dealy. Would I be excluding threats I should be catching by excluding vsmon?
