Quietman, thank you for reply.
For 2 firewalls, so far I have not had any conflicts that I would worry about with both Zonealarm and McAfee HIPS- things run smoothly as far as I can tell. Could you elaborate on:
"Sometimes you may even have a conflict that causes neither firewall to protect your connection. "
Is there any examples or references to the above?
Now, going to anti-virus part of the question - how would you qualify Avira AntiVir product - it seems to be doing both anti-virus and anti-malware monitoring. So, if I run McAfee anti-virus real-time protection AND Avira, I guess I am running 2 anti-virus programs at the same time (even though I run Avira mostly for anti-malware purposes). Just like with firewalls, I see no conflicts so far. Everything seems to work fine... ?
