Can McAfee Personal Firewall and Zone Alarm peacefully co-exist ?

On a Windows Me system, is it OK to have McAfee Personal Firewall and
Zone Alarm (free) both running at the same time?

I know they're probably mutually redundant, but if they can peacefully
co-exist, it's easier to leave them both on instead of removing one of
them.

If it turns out that they shouldn't co-exist, which do you recommend
keeping?

It does not make sense. It does even not make sense to have one of them,
because with Windows ME, you just can unbind any network service (with
the exception of TCP/IP) from your outside interface, and you will not
need a "Personal Firewall" at all.

Sygate has bad security design flaws.

Tiny "Personal Firewall" was the only "Personal Firewall" in our test,
which did not filter anything as the default configuration. It's just
unusable for the average home user. And it has bad security design flaws.

And completely useless, at least on this platform.

Sorry, I missed the "Windows ME."
