Hi All,

May sound a daft question - but here goes.

I have loaded EAV Antivirus Suite Free Edition 5.65 on to my laptop and am looking for a suitable compatible firewall product that will not conflict.

I am considering ZoneAlarm Firewall (Windows 2000/XP) 7.0.362 but am concerned that the two together may conflict.

Can anyone recommend both an anti virus software and firewall software - (Preferabley free) that work well together or know whether zone alarm and EAV work together okay.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Can't answer for those compatabilities, but I have used, and like, ZA and AVG(free) with no problem.
When uploading, suggest going direct to their site but the instructions and options to chose to get the free versions may not be as self evident as the adverts. (Fair enough, though!)

Try avira antivirus and firewall. I have been using them for a long time, and pc advisor have the free trial on there cover discs i believe. It isnt free, but i believe it is only around £12 a year for it.

why do you need another anti virus,you should not run 2. they will cause problems,??is there not a firewall included with the "eav suite",if not there are plenty of free ones available,like comodo (as suggested),or my favourite is "sunbelt personal firewall.
