Zone Alarm

Many years ago I used Zone Alarm firewall, but with a number of PC changes it just got side-lined in favour (because it was already there, rather than any other tech reason) of Windows Defender. But following advice in these forums, I decided it may be a good idea to reinstate ZA. I duly downloaded what I thought was the free ZA firewall, but found after installation it seemed to be an entire AV suite, which seemed to require me to disable the resident AVG 8 and MS Defender etc. ( I have uninstalled the ZA) 
That is not what I was looking for, I was hoping just to be able to use ZA firewall as an added protection, not the main AV programme (I'm otherwise quite happy with AVG)
So, have I found the wrong programme? if so which (if available) is the stand-alone (free) ZA firewall?

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Zone Alarm

Also the free version gives you the option at install time to try the full pro product for 30 days. This may have been what confused you if you said yes.

Yes, quite right Peter it was.
