    Default Zonealarm free firewall and AVG free anti-virus Compatability?

    I've had this issue since installing AVG 2013 - multiple command line scans run daily impacting PC performance. AVG's response is to uninstall ZA. These two products have worked seamlessly for me for over 10 years. Can anyone help? Thx.

    HP Pavilion g6-6635us
    Win 8.1 64 bit
    ZA 13.1.211.000
    AVG 204.0.04592

    the Zone Alarm Basic FREE firewall works well with AVG Free AV 2013..

    [QUOTE]We have install ZA Free Firewall on XP SP3 PC.
    We then downloaded and installed AVG Anti-virus 2013.0.2890

    We verified in the AVG interface that it says the Firewall component is NOT installed.

    My test PC is running just fine.

    Also note that testing against AVG is standard practice with our QA dept to insure we work with them before we release new software.

    This could be a one off issue or the issue is particular with your PC.[/QUOTE]

    So, should uninstall the latest 2014 version of AVG and go back to 2013?

    Hmmm.
    If you have installed AVG 214 and not 204. then I would recommend a clean Uninstall of AVG 214 and reboot computer, then Reinstall AVG 214, then Reboot Computer and see if you still have the same problem..


    Let us know how you have managed to resolve the issue. It will help other users with the same problem.

    Unfortunately, some words have not come across properly. I have AVG 2014 installed. Should I uninstall AVG 2014 and reinstall AVG 2013? Thank you.
