avira had new free program. it stopped downloading due to zone alarm. following directions *i think) i stopped zone alarm, downloaded avira, restarted z.a. and now z.a. won't let avira update. i tried getting into z.a. to tell the program to stop bugging me and let avira run, but apparently didn't do it right and don't know how.

I would uninstall zone alarm and just use the windows firewall....it is much better now than it was years ago...also Avira is not a real good free AV....I would suggest Avast Free:

I agree with using Avast which will work with Zone Alarm. But find Comodo firewall works even better. I wouldn't use the Windows firewall, but that's my own opinion.

I haven't used a 3rd party firewall in over 7 years now, didn't see the need for it. I also used Comodo firewall at one time...just WAY too many NAGS for me.

My opinion are

Getting a free antivirus is better than paid. For example if you use AVG Free and you want anti-rootkit which AVG Free don't provide, you can use google search for free rootkit protection. When you search for a software which only know how to do rootkit protection, there is a higher chance that the product will be much better than AVG paid products. But be careful when you use Google search as some of them may be fake software and may turn up to be viruses.

So lets come to the real thing, you should not buy paid antivirus. Avast! Free is the best antivirus. It have the minimum protection that other company paid antivirus already have. avast! Free only have AutoSandBox right. So if you want a better sandbox, use SafeSpace Free Edition. Looking for a good Firewall? Use ZoneAlarm Free. Among all the firewall, Windows Firewall is the worse one.

ZoneAlarm Free is the best firewall. I think that you never configure your firewall properly. I tried with ZoneAlarm and Avira recently and it work well.
