  1. 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!

    I know Zone Alarm is not compatible with Windows Vista. So you should try something else if you want a firewall. Check www.download.com for a good one that works on Windows Vista.
