Second machine I'm having problems with Vista and Zone Alarm. Don't remember what we ended up with on the first one, was a couple weeks ago. Does ZA work with Vita Home Basic? If not, what's a good, workable preferably free firewall that will work? Edit: I suppose maybe the Windows firewall needs to be turned off or uninstalled to avoid conflict? Being the Windows firewall is so embedded in Windows, any tricks to doing that? While I'm at it, what's a good current anti-spyware that works with Vista? Preferably non-subscription, but info on either will be considered and appreciated. Thanks!
