ZoneAlarm version:6.1.737.000
« on: November 23, 2005, 01:40:06 AM »
I just installed this new release of ZoneAlarm (free version).

Can the avast team confirm that this version contains the driver update that has been discussed as a problem in other threads?

But I still can't use privacy options as the should work. I mean site exclusions is not working and still everything is blocked! So, I just turned off privacy control.   ;D

The crash should indeed be fixed in this ZA release. I got a confirmation from a ZoneLabs programmer that this release includes the fix.


Thanks

Still no fix as far as I can see privacy controls still need to be off, but I don't care

Seems everything works. Upgraded to Pro demo to see how additional features works, but left privacy control disabled as I can live without all these privacy goodies!  ;) Just wanted to see if it works. Seems they works not in that way they need to work. No BSOD till now...  :)

I have the internet zone protection set to high ... working for me (so far).

this topic belongs here because a ZoneAlarm driver has been identified by the avast team as being in conflict with the avast antivirus product.

Right. Event though it had NOTHING to do with avast - because of this bug, the ZA driver was crashing even when avast was not even installed (it was not really a "conflict")... Avast made the situation somewhat more likely but there are many other programs that behaved similarly (all they need to do is use asynchronous I/O system calls).

Vlk,

my apologies for my inappropriate choice of "in conflict".  I should have said that avast users were the innocent victims of an error in the ZoneAlarm driver. 

Kudos to the avast team for detecting and reporting the problem in their product.
