You currently have Zone Alarm installed...Which version? Firewall only or full version free or pay? You should NOT have 2 software firewalls installed at same time! Will create horrors. Only 1 true Anti-Virus also.
Does Comodo still offer the Anti-malware part without the firewall included? Or included but doesn't HAVE to be installed? Been a while since I checked & there was some kerfluffle about Comodo at that time (both to do with latest firewall & default settings on the paid version as well as some problems with Comodo issuing untrustworthy security certificates). This goes back as far as late 2008. Perhaps better now?
There are a few links in the following post(s) you can pick or chose among.
I have NOT YET removed Comodo from my Free Programs List but am NOT promoting it now either. (At one time was quite a fan). Sandy
I am personally currently using AVIRA Anti-Vir free personal A/V and have been generally happy with it & it doesn't seem to conflict w/ any other on demand scanners I have (SAS & MBAM). I'm using MS Firewall behind a hardware WIRED router w/firewall (D-link). No intrusions
and no problems w/IE /Firefox & Sea Monkey. Your mileage may vary!LOL!
I imagine all above free programs will get along w/ Zone Alarm if you're happy w/ ZA. Hope this helps.
I had installed AVG 9.0 (upgrade from 8.5)a few days ago, but just now Uninstalled it becuz I surmised that it was freezing my pc whenever I tried to load a web page..(this has been happening for several days now). Task Manager Processes showed (6) avg items running -- avgtray.exe/avgwdsvc.exe/avgcsrvx/avgrsx.exe/avgchsvx/avgnsx.exe -
so I decided to uninstall it. I have no idea if this was the cause of my pc freezing and incomplete loading of web pages. Now I find that at least I am able to finish loading the sites.
Now, my question is: I have Zone Alarm currently installed - would any conflicts be created if I should install Comodo firewall/antivirus software? and would they both work in tandem when I enable both at startup? Also, could I install another anti-virus program like Anti-vir in addition to Comodo?
Many thanks for help.
