Zonealarm Antivirus saved my butt(have a look)
« on: May 14, 2005, 09:35:33 AM »
My moms computer is running Windows 98 alright and well I have both Avast and ZA Firewall Package running, I needed to check lyrics for a song and tryed the first site on Yahoo well immediatly ZA popped up with a warning that something was trying to redirect the site warning it was a exploit and the virus it was trying to dl was Win32.SillyDI.HQ into the temporary internet files folder although it couldnt delete em at first the option to treat them then delete worked and well it was able to treat both surprisingly and I went ahead and ran both spyware and AV to check and nothing popped up......so is it safe to say with ZA's help I dodged a bullet?

So your saying that you have avast and ZoneAlarm Antivirus on at the same time?

ZoneAlarm does not delete anything. It's a firewall, it could block the access to Internet.
avast! could delete it, as it is an antivirus.
Which program alerts you? In which one you 'deleted' the file?

Well, Parachutestx,
we are happy to know that there's a wonderful program like ZA Pro (yes, we knew it! ;D) but you know that is NOT free... only  ( :P )$59.95 for 1 year.

ZA Pro does not include an AV program.
The  AV you're referring to is only a monitor of your AV program provided it's an AV
program that ZA recognizes and avast! ISN'T one of them.

I thought it quite clear ZA Pro doesn't have an anti-virus, ZA Security Suite and ZA AntiVirus, do have an AV.

Yes, that was confusing us, as we didn't believe it could be ZA Pro as it doesn't have an AV.

So I guess your answer to MFB http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=13471.msg113867#msg113867 would be you are running ZA's AV and avast together?

If so, running two resident AVs could cause conflict and that conflict may let the next bullet through.
