"ZoneAlarm Is A Shady Software That Will Turn On You."
ZoneAlarm did give me the ip address of a computer that was connected to mine remotely.
ZoneAlarm is too much trouble not worth the head ache or anurism it will give you.
ZoneAlarm started off great back in 2005, But after about 8 months of using it things went bazerk. I called there tech support, and the guy i spoke to was clearly a hustler. He told me i was having trouble with the firewall because i was using the free version and he insisted i use a paid version. To make a long story short, I bought the paid version. After about 4 days my system started crashing, ZoneAlarm firewall wouldn't even allow me to open up my internet browser. Then i called tech support again and the same guy answered. But this time he asked me what version of windows was i running, I told him windows XP Home Edition. He then blurted out ZoneAlarm isn't for Xp and i would need Win2000, Linux, or a Mac pc. I just surrendered and uninstalled, I wasted between 37-45 bucks in total. Most firewalls are garbage, But ZoneAlarm was by far the worst of any i have used. Even after i uninstalled it i kept having trouble with my computer. So i decided to search my computer, and low and behold i started finding ZoneAlarm folders all throughout my entire hard drive. It was still in the system registry, control panel, Documents and settings etc. To be on the safe side i just did a reinstall of my operating system to make sure it was gone. It costs me money and time lesson learned is to stick with the windows firewall.
