Editors' Review

+

This security program promises an innovative approach to preventing malware infections on your PC, based on restricting application access to system files. By focusing on prevention instead of detection, claims the publisher of WindowZones, the program offers a stronger line of defense against attacks.

WindowZones works by restricting an application's access to system files and settings via user account control, and it claims to inoculate for both known and unknown species of bugs out there: Internet Explorer security holes, identity-thieving hackers, rootkit installations, and the usual spyware and adware assaults.

The interface that allows you to assign "zones" to your programs is modern and sleek, with tabs on the left and an uncluttered layout in the central pane. When you start the program, all apps are placed in the "Administrative Zone," where programs have full access to all system files and resources. You can then move them at will and without restarting to the "Safe Zone," where modifying system files, changing the registry, and drive-by downloads are verboten.

In theory, WindowZones should remove the need for regular virus scans, and possibly even firewalls. Since this is the first release, though, we recommend hedging your bets and sticking with more tried-and-true defenses.

"Brilliant approach!"

June 30, 2008  |  By johnwtucson

 |  Version: WindowZones 1

Pros

Apparently, this program keeps my computer safe by blocking all web browser access to the internet. A big plus was the ease with which it was uninstalled.

Cons

And I'm supposed to pay thirty bucks to be unable to use the internet?

I can't try it, Vista has been available to the public since November 2006 and as a pre release beta version prior to this.

"Phenominal!"

January 18, 2008  |  By p0weruz3r

 |  Version: WindowZones 1

Pros

I was getting really tired of paying a monthly subscription for some massive clunky antivirus program which hogged up my resources. This is better because it stops the viruses from ever even getting started rather than needing some massive index of definitions to look up threats.
