The good: Hides ports from hackers; retains custom settings after upgrade; slick interface is easy to use; new expert rules for pros.
The bad: No phone support; cumbersome rule-making process.
The bottom line: ZoneAlarm Pro 4.5 is a great firewall for security rookies, but you'll still need a separate antivirus program.
Pros: THe program is excellent! install/fire and forget about it, the stability is 100%, never had to tinker with it more than a couple of minutes.
Cons: There's a known issue/bug with the latest 4.5 patch/program. It has not been addressed until now - Online Gamers simply can't play! and it effects the entire gaming community. Until they fix this issue(Never had problems until today)thumbs down.
to all; jeffs fix.
Pros: to the fix of Mr. I will not tell you Jeffy..! gateyway.messnger.hotmail.com ( the com.. is only if it is needed. if your woundering run a surch( ANY.you all figuer out the rest.
Cons: it has a personel hate for M$N8.5 I stay out of it.
I have NEVER had a problem with Zone Alarm!
Pros: I'm confused as to the crash and slow-down comments. I have XP Pro and there's no compatibility problem. It blocks most pop-ups. The 4.0+ versions have the feature where you can set your computer to receive NO ads if you wish. I tried it, it blocked out E
Cons: That guy who said Zone Alarm now "phones home" has me a little worried. I would hate to think the protection program itself is tracking me!
Gone the spyware way. See below.
Pros: Ever since version 4.5, ZA automatically 'calls home' WITHOUT the option to turn this 'feature' off. ZA is getting more and more confident I see. What's next?
Cons: See above.
Pros: I have been using Zone alarm the free version for the longest time until I switched to Zone Alarm pro last week and I have to say when it comes to killing pop-ups pop-unders, banner tracking adds, e-mail worm attachemtns and hackers this piece of software
Cons: Service and Support can be alot better then it is.
Pros: Hard to think of any.
Cons: Does not performed as advertised. Slowest, most ineffective program on my laptop. Unbelievably slow boot up. Several pop-ups and other inquiry files still make it through, in spite of setting options to maximum security. I uninstalled this after I bou
Not a reliable product or service
Pros: Easy to use and configure - good user interface.
Cons: When ZA first starts up, the internet works fine, slightly slower perhaps. But after a while, intermitantly(several times a day) most internet sites, all become unavailable apart from one or two. All internet sites become accessible again only after you
A good product for Network Adm
Pros: Easy to use, easy to set up, tons feature, work much better than 3.xx. However for home user, go for the free ediston. As the name of this product. it is too PRO
ZA rules, but...
Pros: It's very aggressive to catch the bad guys in the net and makes you feel safe and sound!
Cons: Freezes up XP, and if you're running Kazaa programs, ZA don't like it. They don't match together!
As Advertised with XP Pro
Pros: Works as advertised. I tried the XP firewall for a while and then on-line Casino's started popping up at random on my desktop from nowhere. Being a former ZA user I said "enough of this" and downloaded ZA 4. No more casinos!!
Cons: Does use alot of resources, but should not really be a problem on the new mega memory machines....
