First of all, according to Oracle's certification matrix, Oracle 9.0.x has been desupported so I hope you are installing release 9.2. In any case, I personally have not experienced the difficulties you describe. I have seen ZoneAlarm interfere with OEM and listener operations, but I have never seen an Oracle installation interfere with ZoneAlarm or an antivirus program in the way you describe. You may need to open an iTAR with Oracle about this issue.
