    "DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT"

    May 12, 2012  |   By TWB404

    Pros

    Somehow ZoneAlarm has gone in and had my reviews scrubbed from the review section. This demonstrates just how bad this program is. They are manipulating the reviews and are trying to hide facts from the users who wish to decide what security to use. You have to asked yourself what they are trying to hide from you. I did not violate any site policy in me review of the program. I did point out that a majority of the 5 star rating where from first time reviewers who also wanted to give it a glowing a review. That is something you need to be weary of.

    Cons

    The biggest con for this program is that both the web installer and the offline installer has the Conduit toolbar in it. This is what I think they do not want you to know. I think the main reason they ask people to uninstall their AV before starting the download is so they no not get this alert. Conduit is a hideous program that takes a blow torch to remove from your puter. Even if you run the uninstaller, parts of it remains behind.

    Summary

    ZoneAlarm has sold out their loyal user and turn v10 into corporate spyware. If you download and install this program your puter will be exposed to all the corporate spyware out there.

    DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. DO NOT TRUST A COMPANY THAT HAS A HONEST REVIEW REMOVED SO YOU WILL KNOW WHAT SOMEONES AV HAS TOLD THEM. DO NOT TRUST A COMPANY THAT DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO READ OTHER PEOPLE OPINION OF THEIR PRODUCT. DO NOT TRUST A COMPANY THAT DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DOWNLOAD A OFFLINE INSTALLER. DO NOT TRUST A COMPANY THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE CONDUIT TOOLBAR. DO NOT TRUST ZONEALARM OR THIS PROGRAM.
