Hi, I'm new here, as I've used free ZA and free Avast for years, with no problems.

I've recently installed the latest edition of ZA and that worked fine with Avast 4. However, since installing Avast 5 I'm having all sorts of problems that are leaving my base computer useless, until I can sort it out.

The screen keeps freezing and then when I close down the computer, I get an box saying Zone Alarm - End Programme and another box saying Zone Alarm - not responding.

Sometimes the Avast and ZA icons disappear from the tray, while I'm still using the computer.

I can use Outlook Express ok, initially, then have problems when I try to use Internet Explorer.


Please help.
