Windows 7: RUSE conflicting with Zone Alarm

RUSE conflicting with Zone Alarm

I've just installed RUSE on my new computer and I've found that a Zone Alarm bubble always springs up called "Smart Defense Advisor". I can guess it just wants me to clear RUSE for the computer. Trouble is it seems to make my pointer invisible on screen so it's impossible to clear the game for use. Any ideas how to get around this?

Uninstal Zone Alarm. Much better firewalls out there. Many of them free.

In addition to what rvbfan said you can replace zone alarm firewall with comodo firewall which is very reliable and i use it and works really well in my setup.I use Microsoft security essentials along with comodo firewall and best of all it's free. Just select the free download which is the button in green.
