I found the problem with ZA. It was on Microsoft's end. I think MSE and ZA didn't play well together. I read where it was resolved a while back, but I'm satisfied with W 7 firewall and I'm sitting behind a firewalled router.

Hi everyone. Use of two realtime protection is not advisible read here Two anti-virus. I use Avast free 5.0, MBAM(free), SAS(free), Spywareblaster(Free) and winpatrol plus. Browser: firefox with addon like no script, better privecy. and to keep the OS up to date is also important.
