problems with Zone Alarm
« on: October 13, 2007, 06:35:33 PM »

I've just downloaded Avast anti virus, the free home version. After downloading I got a message about some conflicts with Zone Alarm, which I use as my firewall. I got a message about turning off "the transparent proxy mode of the Web Shield" and began to try and follow the pages and options that appeared. I'm afraid I got lost. I'm sorry I just didn't understand what I was being asked - things like browsing for a new IPS, or something like that. I had to go out for a hour and hoped to keep working at this when I got home, but when I did these pages of instruction were off my screen and the program seems to just have installed. Now I can't get access to my E-mail program Outlook Express and lots of other weird things are happening.I can't even find out how to get back to those instructions which I can't understand

Can anyone help me out? I'd like to use Avast. A tech at work put me on to it and right away I caught the Trojan my old anti-virus had been missing.

Please stick with your original topic,, duplication just causes duplication of effort for those trying to help. Since you aren't using avast 4 server edition this is the wrong forum for your question.
