    Zone Alarm again

    I'm running ZA Security Suite trial on Vista Home premium and last night the computer wouldn't shut down. Also, it shows no spyware when scanned, but AVG anti spyware picked up 37. I'm wondering whether just to uninstall and run AVG. Also, I'm not sure whether it's scanning my email.

    You already have a recommendation and (I think) a solution from Joe Perez in your other thread, don't you agree?

    Thanks for answering. AVG Spyware picked up what it said were tracking sites. I'm sorry I'm not more savy about these things, but I'm trying to learn. I'll rely on Zone Alarm since everyone recommends it.

    I suspect that they were in fact tracking cookies. If you're interested, Google on this, or have a look at the Wkipedia article on the subject.

    Re: Zone Alarm again

    You can't tun two antivirus programs at the same time. AVG and ZoneAlarm Security Suite do not appear to work and play well together. ZoneAlarm should be all you need, and since you (most likely) paid for the ZA suite, I'd keep that one. HTH <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
