Avast

Recommended Posts

Yep, that did it. ZA didn't ask for permission, which is strange. I told ZA to allow AVAST, and now it's working properly. Phew, I didn't want to change firewalls too.

Thanks MP :sick:

I hate Zone Alarm...

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

and can you us why?

posting reasons why you dont like a particular software (whatever it is) can possibly help other users in deciding wheter or not they will try it out.

when i had Zone Alarm i was real impressed with it. for me it was simple to use, nice user interface, and seemed to offer adequate protection for my machine.

Its not really the fact that I hate it. It's just... I don't see a reason to use Firewalls. I use the Windows Xp Sp2 and the one in my Router. I have used ZoneAlarm in the past and I thought it was to buggy and it kept asking me to approve all these random connections and all.

Obviously you DO see the reason to use Firewalls since you're using 2...hardware and software.

The reason to use Firewalls is to keep malware from getting on your pc in the first place. It's your best line of defense.

ZA isn't buggy, it was asking you to approve connections so that you always knew/know what is connecting to your pc. Most good software firewalls require some sort of configuration, and approval from you AT FIRST.

I'm don't ranting....for now. :sick:

krit86lr,

I already knew all what you just stated. Well, actually. I can't figure out who to go with. I've thought about some and don't know who to turn too. Any company you point out to me on your reply I'll probably know of. I only go towards the freeware ones though. I might go back o ZA but IDK....

Note: Avast! and ZA don't go well together

They do on my computer. :sick:

Maybe, but Avast specifically gives a warning during installation that there is a conflict between the two. :lol:

You must not realize the conflict cause it may not be noticeable :sick: but I guess if you like ZA then o... well.
