    Default Installing ZA Extreme without the antivirus option?

    Hi,
    I own zone alarm pro and wish to upgrade to zone alarm extreme security, but without the antivirus option.
    Can i install extreme security and run another antivirus at same time without problems??

    No, you cannot install ZA Extreme without AV. You can turn it OFF after, but normally this is not recommended due to the fact that antivirus kernel drivers are still loaded on the system even if the antivirus is disabled. This can cause conflicts and malfunction. Also running multiple security tools increase memory use and CPU. If you buy a top line security suite then better you take full advantage of all its parts.

    Nevertheless, any version of ZA has a 30 days trial, so you can try your luck by testing with other AVs.

    Thanks,
    Fax

    Hi;

    I agree with Guru Fax,

    Any Security Suite program is designed to work best using all of the Features that come with the Suite.

    If you do not want all the Security Features that come ZA Extreme Security, it is better that you stay with Zone Alarm Pro and your 3rd party Anti-virus..

    Nevertheless, any version of Zone Alarm has a 30 days trial that lets you try it before buying it, you may like the anti-virus protection that comes with ZA Extreme Security Suite...


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