I am trying to update AVG to version 9. The AVG install program wants me to uninstall zonealarm. I have tried to find the official answer to this on the zonealarm website but I can’t find it. Some people suggest lower security settings etc. Any help please.

Install Zone Alarm, you cannot run them both together. You should never run two anti-virus applications on the same computer. Because of the way anti-virus software works each will think the other is a virus and be constantly interfering with each other.

Thanks for the reply stuart. I thought zonealarm was a firewall??
I've been using AVG free with zonealarm free for years with very few problems.

If you have the free version yes, it is a firewall. But if you have the paid version it does have anti-virus built in.

so the two programs should coexist on my PC as they have always done, but they don't! Presumably there is something different about AVG9 that makes it incompatible with zonealarm?
