When you install avast it will mention compatibility, as the ZA Pro's Privacy function can play havoc with the web shield localhost proxy.

You should answer Yes, that disables the transparent proxy function of the Web Shield and you have to set the browser to use the web shield proxy, see below. Other than that no real issues.

If you are using ZoneAlarm Pro and Privacy Control in ZoneAlarm is set to High and if you click YES in avast compatibility dialogue box the transparent mode proxy in web shield will be turned off you have to manually configure browser to access internet. To manually configure your browser watch instructional video
