Is Zonealarm compatible with Avira?

In the Avira status screen it says the firewall is turned off. In the help screen it says Avira only works with its own firewall and with the Windows firewall. But I have Zonealarm running, and it seems to be working fine, but I'm concerned there may be an incompatibility with Avira.


Two similar security solutions would consume your additional system performance & resources. Here, I would recommend that you remove ZoneAlarm product (antivirus or firewall).

Alas, Internet security 'suite' (is it really one ?) dropped the firewall right now.

Zonealarm FREE firewall works fine with Avira, but Avira does not WANT to recognize
a firewall other (and better) than windows poor one.

So you have to manage with a status saying 'Your PC is not protected' all the time.

Note that Zonealarm FREE firewall does not include any virus protection, so it does not
interfere with Avira.
