Editors' Review

+

ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware 7 is a stand-alone application from Zone Labs, long respected for its excellent free firewall software. Here, their Anti-Spyware uses firewall technology to specifically address spyware, providing a deep level of protection; unfortunately, it also requires a significant amount of user intervention until it learns your system.

Putting a stop to every form of spyware is no easy task, but ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware does a pretty good job of being your first line of defense. The antispyware package comes with ZoneAlarm's firewall software, a component that monitors your antivirus software, and e-mail protection against dangerous attachments. People familiar with the popular ZoneAlarm firewall software will recognize the intuitive tabbed interface and newcomers will become acclimated quickly by exploring each section. Unlike most popular antispyware software, ZoneAlarm scans commonly affected system areas rather than your entire computer.

While this method scans faster than other options and is mostly effective for catching intruders, we find a comprehensive system scan to be more desirable. Overall, ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware is a good choice as part of your defense against spyware. Those looking for the addition of a software firewall included in their antispyware program will find ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware a mostly reliable choice.

"Great for Techies"

September 28, 2007  |  By techaddict69

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware 7.0

Pros

It works great, doesn't slow down my computer (and my computer's not all that powerful either), highly configurable.

Cons

You really have to know what your doing to use this, and a lot of manual configuration is necessary to get it work properly. Combine it with A^2 High-Jack Free for options that aren't included. USE THE TRIAL FIRST to ensure you have the tech skills and the time to make this program work.

Anyone who says this is "simple to use" must be comparing it to programing in binary, hasn't used the program, or is a total moron. If you like High-jack This, you'll love this program. If High-jack this is gibberish to you, or you've never heard of it, don't bother downloading this one, stick with something simpler like Spy Sweeper or Spyware Doctor.

"Zone Alarm pro is better off without it !"

July 22, 2007  |  By Gablle

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware 7.0

Pros

I have this installed as part of Zone Alarm Pro. I run a daily scan which finds, and deletes, the same SINGLE poor little piece of ''spyware'' time and time again. It NEVER found anything else except this one. Someties it blocks me from entering into potentially spyware infected sites.

Cons

Doesn't detect a thing. ZERO, ZULCH, detection rate.
