I recently downloaded the latest version of ZoneAlarm. Now I get a taskbar red shield icon and a popup notification that I may not be protected, because no antivirus is showing as reported. I use Avira AntiVir and it is working. Is there a setting, perhaps in ZoneAlarm or elsewhere that I need to correct? Thanks, JT.

Try this: http://www.vistaheads.com/forums/microsoft-public-windows-vista-security/225051-security-center-reporting-no-antu-virus-software.html#post794493

If it doesn't work, reinstall Avira.

I believe that's normal...Windows has a disclaimer saying that Security Center may not recognize the AV used.

I use Avira and I just disable the AV recognition by Security Center (in XP). I doubt if Vista is different.

Problem fixed! I opened my Avira folder, clicked Setup, and there was an option for Repair/Maintenance. After I ran the repair, Windows Security Center recognized Avira. JT
