Zone Alarm detects Virus.Win32.KME Avast Free AV installer
« on: October 03, 2011, 10:44:17 AM »
Good morning, I was interested in Avast! Free AV but when I try to install it, Zone Alarm AV detects "Virus.Win32.KME" into the file "C:\Programmi\AVAST Software\Avast\onefile.

I agree that I cannot have both AV, but I wish to disable Zone Alarm AV after installing Avast! product.

Is it a false positive?

Regards,

Filippo

ZoneAlarm AV is not good antivirus IMHO - much false positives, slow, high memoery usage, low detection rate

Zone Alarms free Firewall isn't any good either!

To run combined with Avast! Free AV I recommend Online Armour or Comodo as good free Firewalls.
