My favorite firewall just made a big mistake. Do you have ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall
and McAfee AntiVirus
installed on the same system? If so, there is a problem. When you attempt to install the latest ZoneAlarm upgrade Version 6.5 you will get a dialog box that advises: ZoneAlarm has detected McAfee AntiVirus software on your computer. You must uninstall McAfee before ZoneAlarm can be installed.
Imagine my surprise when I read this message. Upon reading the ZoneAlarm user forums, turns out a lot of people were surprised and very unhappy too.
Has Zone Labs lost their minds? I happen to have a substantial financial investment in both of these products. I don't think ZoneAlarm needs to be invoking strong arm tactics in some lame attempt at making decisions about whatever software I happen to choose be on my computer. I'm furious, and so are many others.
