    Windows Security Center is not detecting ZoneAlarm Firewall

    I have ZoneAlarm Extreme Anti-virus/Anti-spyware. This software includes firewall security.

    I keep getting Windows Security Alerts, telling me to turn Windows Firewall on. I don't want to do this, because I already have ZoneAlarm Firewall enabled. Why wont Windows Security Center detect the ZoneAlarm Firewall?

    Also, Windows Security Center is telling me that "ZoneAlarm Extreme Anti-virus is on, but is reporting its status to Windows Security in a format that is no longer supported. Use the program's automatic updating feature, or contact the program manufacturer for an updated version".

    Now, I already updated everything. What's wrong?

    Btw, I am using the 15-day trial for ZoneAlarm Extreme Anti-virus/Anti-spyware. Is this software any good, or do I have better options? If so, exactly what should I download?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello zahid,
    Did your computer come with an Anti Virus prog preinstalled?
    If so what was it called & how did you remove it?
    Have you a router firewall?
