If you are using the free version, my suggestion would be to turn on the WIN XP Firewall, unistall ZoneAlarm, install one of the other free software firewalls, then disable the WinXP Firewall. How are you connected? Are you using a router?
The most important thing to keep in mind, regardless of which anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware and firewall you use ( http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/default.mspx
) is to keep it UPDATED, just as it is important to make sure you have all windows critical and security updates. + = http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/...t.aspx?ln=en-us
