    I just read a review on CNET regarding problems between Avast! and Zonealarm running together but it gave no details. Has anyone had any issues with these two running on the same system?

    I use ZA Internet Security Suite but have the Kaspersky AV engine turned off because it interfered with other programs.

    Hi, folks: I have both Avast home and ZA Pro, no issues whatsoever have ever occurred. ZASS may be different, I do not know. CNET warns readers about something and giving out no details ? Perhaps a sort of wolf is coming tale ? :mad:

    I think the problem was/is due to conflicts between ZA pro's privacy features and Avast's web shield. I don't use Avast or ZA so I'm not sure if the "problem" still exists.

    Here is one thread on the Avast forum that discusses it.
