    Default Possible conflict with Spybot 2.1.

    I believe I have discovered a possible conflict between ZA Free Firewall + AV 11.0.000.504 and Spybot 2.1.


    After installing Spybot 2.1, the AV update in ZA no longer completes. It stops at 2% and returns the helpful error message "ERROR." Then, the update to the software itself tries to run, but, doesn't appear to do anything. I have to cancel and then cancel again to get the updater to stop and exit.


    I tried disabling Spybot's Live Protection, but, that didn't help. When Spybot was uninstalled, the checks for updates complete properly in ZA. So, I installed Spybot again, and the problem returned. Uninstalling Spybot again resumed proper updating.

    Its best to wait for Spybot people to finish there investigation.

    If they find its ZoneAlarm ask them to reach out to ZoneAlarm to work directly with both development teams to fix it.

    Before posting, I did a search for the term Spybot and found that thread. I didn't read it, though, because I don't use Windows 8. So, I'm sorry for posting on an issue that's already been posted. Had I known it was already a known issue, I wouldn't have double posted.

    You could use the Free Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on-demand scanner.Very good detection.No known issues with ZoneAlarm.
