    Default New avast 2014 Free antivirus & zone-alarm free firewall (without AV)

    I have been using zone-alarm free firewall with avast 8 free antivirus
    without any problems both worked well together

    But since avast has updated their free anti-virus to version 9 2014
    I can no longer get the free zone-alarm firewall to load
    As in the icons won't load on the system tray

    I had to temporary un-install my free zone-alarm firewall

    My question is - Is zone-alarm free firewall Not compatible yet with the avast new upgrade 2014?

    Considering that AVAST new version have broken the compatibility with an existing version of ZA I would rather post at the AVAST forum to see if they are aware of the issue.

    Its not uncommon that at each AVAST new release they break compatibility with ZA. Best to let them know so that they can work on a fix. Always assuming there is an issue/bug. I am not aware of a ZA problem... at least I have no memory of posts similar to yours recently.

    You're welcome!

    I am afraid that the answer you may get is "dump ZA use something else or AVAST directly"... But OK, nothing to loose to try it.

    And if it is the case... then I would say... "dump Avast use ZAfree + AV "

    ZoneAlarm has tested Avast Free Antivirus version 2014.9.0.2006
    With ZoneAlarm Free Firewall AND ZoneAlarm Pro version 11.0.780.000

    We found no issue with ZA installed first then install avast.

    We can only assume your issue has to be a bad upgrade from avast over your previous avast install.

    ZoneAlarm Free Firewall AND ZoneAlarm Pro version 11.0.780.000
    is 100% compatible with this version of avast.
