    I have used both ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm and McAfee AV for a long time.

    A few days ago, I responded to an online alert that I could upgrade McAfee. And so, I downloaded/installed the current… build 10.0.27. Upon installation, it informed me of an incompatibility with the ZoneAlarm firewall.

    Several days before, I had received the periodic update alert from Zone and had downloaded version 6.5.731.000, but not installed it.

    Having a memory from the past of a point where these two products did not get along well, I just proceeded to install the new ZA version.

    Now... no mention of incompatibilities… they seem to be working together fine.

    However, I have noted a lot of chatter about this on various FAQ’s and would like a confirming opinion if I am OK. I don’t want to just trust the “appearance” that things are working fine.

    Thanks so much.
