Author Topic: AVG Antivirus and ZoneAlarm firewall Conflict  (Read 8320 times)
« on: October 14, 2008, 09:38:57 am »

Hello all.

I'm sure enough of you use the two excellent programs AVG antivirus, and ZoneAlarm Firewall.

Well, the latest AVG antivirus virus definitions have a glitch and think that Zone Alarm is a 'trojan horse Agent_r.CX'
It is a false positive.

There are two options.

Ignore it until AVG fixes their update (probably be today) (for some people the warning keeps popping up, so you cant really ignore it because its too annoying)

or the workaround:

In AVG:
Double-Click "Resident shield" and select "Manage exceptions".
Click "Add Path" and add "C:\windows\system32\ZoneLabs" to it.
Click "ok" and then "Save changes".


Have fun computing!
