Welcome to the fourms, awaisagha! What other virus protection do you have installed? I know you need a firewall, but it must be configured to let your apps run. I use MSE on all of my systems with no problems. You need an anti virus program installed. I would suggest to either properly configure your firewall or revert back to the Windows default one. You're most likely going to have problems with any anti virus program until you properly configure your firewall. You said you can't compromise on Zonealarm, then you must learn how to work it. A firewall alone is no good.

Zone alarm, I read, is giving a lot of problems with windows 7, but mostly due to poor configuration. What is the result if you disable it (Zone alarm)
