yes they are, never had any problems that I know of with them, could you explain why that's asking for trouble? I'm going to look into MSE as suggested when I'm not busy next week, but yes, please elaborate if you can. thanks

Are these still on your computer? If so you are asking for trouble.

Avast and Zone Alarm are two anti virus on the same computer at the same time, that is a no no. One anti virus and one firewall on one computer at the same time hopefully the same brand. One anti virus will detect the other and think it is a bad thing. Their for causing all kinds of problems. Then if one installed another anti virus such as MSE, now their are thee anti virus fighting each other.

zone alarm is a firewall? and there's no firewall in the free version of avast, so they don't do the same thing? certainly not to my knowledge anyway, never had any issues with them. I plan to look into MSE soon though, sounds good - and will definitely use the remove tool suggested to get rid of avast and za first.

still intruiged as to why steam is a bad thing?

Thanks anyway for the help guys, really appreciate it

Their was no way from your post that anyone could tell whether zone alarm installed was a anti virus or a firewall or both that is why I mentioned it.
Have a nice day.

Glitches occur

Sometimes updater just glitch.

I updated my NVidia drivers last August.
The W7 (64 bit) driver installed with no problems.
After I tried to update the XP (32 bit) driver, I couldn't boot into either Windows install.
I had to re-image my PC.
When I repeated the procedure, it all worked perfectly.

IMO, you should run something like NoScript (in Firefox) for extra protection from Internet "nasties".
