I have been using ZoneAlarm's free firewall for years and like it. I was just notified that my version was outdated and no longer supported and to download a new version. When I ran the downloaded package it detected the free firewall and gave me one option: to have the new program replace the existing one and reuse all defaults (something similar to that wording).
When I did I got a notice that the ZoneAlarm antivirus was conflicting with my previously installed Avast.
I was not informed an antivirus package was being installed -- in the past I have always declined ZoneAlarm's antivirus because I am happy with Avast.
Is there any way to remove ZoneAlarm's antivirus and keep Avast?
If not, I intend to uninstall ZoneAlarm and enable the Avast firewall.
I do not like being misled.
