Use a real anti-virus / firewall :P

Windows 7 <= Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows 7.
This AV has the highest detection rate of virii, period.
It also incorporates a firewall.

Select "Activate Beta License" after install.

Consider yourself lucky then. If it did install, you would have ended up with a system without net access at best, or a system that will not boot.

To Checkpoint's credit, they state that they do not support Windows 7 yet. In this case, they're really not kidding lol.

ZA is just rat ****.
It doesn't support ANY os properly.
Every time i've tried to use it personally, or dealt with a customer who's got it they always face the same unbeatable problems;

1) The filtering rules allows unlimited access to the internet/network but programs are still blocked.
2) Program X is allowed unlimited access to the internet/network, but it is blocked. (:@!)
3) Can't un-install ZoneAlarm, it crashes or spits out an error message =/

That's nonsense. I've been using it for my exact needs which are somewhat above basic, for many years XP through Vista. It has always performed very well, if not perfectly for me. And I almost have always run beta, too.

Number 3, alright, that may be true. To get around this, I use another OS to boot from (safe mode from same OS would work too), delete all the files from the system (in program files and windows\system32), remove the service by hand if the uninstaller that froze did not lol, delete the Windows\Internet Logs folder, and then run a reg clean. Then a new install is possible, if ever needed.

Feel lucky? That's all the advice i can give you.
You're in the minority.

Considering the Skilled badge, i'd be more inclined to say it's a representation of your skill rather than a representation of the stability of the software in question.

Thanks for the Kaspersky link ! I might just use this.

The reason why I want to use Zonealarm/Bitdefender is because they are the only ones with Identity theft protection, they allow me to encrypt my passwords so they never reach the internet.. And after 3 times people hacked into my uploading service accounts and forum accounts, I am starting to insist on these features...

Well.. if people are hacking your online accounts it's because they've used one of two procedures;

Hacked the online server directly. In this case, you can't do anything about it whatsoever. Any problem with accounts must be taken up with the holder, e.g Rapidshare

Hacked your PC. In this case, they absolutely without question must have had some very custom software on your pc. Symantec corporate (not norton) and kaspersky should both have a very good success rate at picking up custom trojans, yet it's still important to familiarise yourself with the tasks in the task managers' process list and what they do.

Finally, keep your PC clean with Spybot Search and Destroy and lavasofts' Ad-aware. Don't use anything else as alternatives a're often malicious, misleading fakes like WinAntivirus 2008 and Adware - Those ones for example, actually installs MORE spyware on your PC.
