Zamzom

CNET Editors' review

Zamzom is designed to block access to Web sites. Enter any Web sites that you want to block, and Zamzom will prevent access to them. It also keeps a log of Web sites visited.

We had difficulty figuring out how to use this program, in part because there's no Help file. When we first ran Zamzom, we didn't realize that it's designed to run from the toolbar and not from your PC's programs menu. Once it opened, we entered Web sites into the Block list. Attempting to access the blocked sites brought up a message that the browser was unable to establish a connection, so we assume that the blocking process was working. The program keeps a Screen File log and a Log file list of sites accessed. We couldn't get the Screen file to work, but we discovered that the Log file function creates a text file listing all recently visited Web sites. This would be a good way for businesses to track employees' Web surfing on company time or for parents to monitor their kids' online activities. Zamzom claims to offer a way to e-mail the results of these logs, but we couldn't figure out how to get that feature to work. This program really needs a Help file.

Zamzom is freeware. For a free application, it does a good job of tracking and blocking Web activity. The lack of clear instructions is vexing, though, and there are probably easier-to-use options available.

    "Disappointing"

    May 5, 2011  |   By joerog55

    Version: Zamzom 01.03.09

    Pros

    Easy to install, displays info about your IP, MAC.

    Cons

    First scan showed another IP and MAC but when 'computer name' is clicked it asks for $12.50 to upgrade to premium.

    Summary

    Since knowing the computer name is the prime factor in determining a network interloper, not upgrading to 'premium' makes the free version nearly useless. I'd have rather paid $12.50 up front than made to feel I was being lured into upgrading, and taking this tactic as an insult to my intelligence, instead of upgrading, I uninstalled.
