    Welcome to the Zone Alarm User Forum..

    By design , Zone Alarm Turns Off Windows Firewall when Zone Alarm is installed.. to prevent Conflict and improve the Security of your Computer, installing and or adding too may competing Security Software programs will Reduce your Computer protection not increase it, due to the Conflict caused by each program trying to compete for resources and may cancel out each other.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For other Security Programs that may contain a Firewall or Anti-virus, Follow these two (2) Rules..

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two software Firewalls at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility or if not available, use the Windows XP or Win
    7 add/remove software tool in the control panel.
