ZoneAlarm Antivirus

CNET Editors' review

Along with its effective and easy-to-use firewall protection, ZoneAlarm with Antivirus adds virus features and security controls. The most notable improvements in this latest release are enhanced virus detection and an Auto-Learn function to minimize unnecessary security alerts.

ZoneAlarm's wizard makes firewall configuration and maintanence incredibly easy, with a stylish interface and simple slider controls. The app boasts an ultrasecure triple-layer firewall and experts will appreciate the customizing options. The Zones feature allows you to assign different security levels for local networks and the Internet. The program was very good at automatically including our local network settings and auto-detected wireless machines. In all our tests, the firewall held strong against all threats it encountered.

Beyond the firewall function, ZoneAlarm with Antivirus includes an antivirus scanner, based on Computer Associates' Vet Anti-Virus, that blocks both incoming and outgoing viruses. The most intriguing aspect of this feature is its Advanced Heuristic Detection algorithm, which uses behavior analysis to detect suspicious actions caused by brand-new viruses that haven't yet made it into the virus-definitions database. Though this version of ZoneAlarm lacks the privacy and identity features of the Pro version, users who are satisfied with their existing privacy-protection tools may find ZoneAlarm with Antivirus fits their needs.

    "This is a review of version 7.1 for "Vista"."

    June 24, 2007  |   By UM Canes

    Version: ZoneAlarm Antivirus 7.0

    Pros

    As usual download.com is a little late. This version 7.1 has to, as of today, be downloaded from "Zone Labs". Inn searching for alternate security apps for my "Vista" operating system, I found this app. First, let me say that it's very different then version 7. Unlike the typical first restart after install when you have to wait for what seems like forever, this version starts pretty fast. My general description is:

    It looks like the free "Zone Alarm Firewall" with the new "Kapersky AntiVirus" engine.

    The initial update is kind of slow and so is the initialization of the first scan. In fact the scan itself is kind of slow but thorough. The detection rate is very high. It found, in the first 5,200 files scanned, one infection that the "Trend Micro Suite" missed. In the first 18,000 files, three more. Impressive! Removal and treatment options all work as I'd hoped. So far, It looks pretty good so far.

    This is the first machine I've been able to run the "Kapersky AV" engine without conflict and the app gets along well with "Counter Spy" "Zone Labs" is giving great deals on the new "Vista" ready versions so now is the time to get it if this is what you want to run as a firewall and anti virus. This app can be purchased, now with a one year license for $19.95, which is cheap in my book. So far, I can recommend this app without reservation.

    Cons

    I'd like to see the firewall with all the features of the firewall in the internet security suite and I'd also like to see a faster scan. It takes some time to understand and the detections in the first scan should all be read and looked at closely prior to taking any action, especially for those not used to ?Kapersky?s? anti virus. Other then this, no further cons. this is a good alternative at the price you can get it for now!

    "Now Kaspersky-Based, so better than the one Download.com gave 5 stars to!"

    June 4, 2007  |   By SWtester

    Version: ZoneAlarm Antivirus 7.0

    Pros

    Great firewall with improved interface, antivirus updates in background HOURLY (as does Kaspersky 6), scans remain in background nicely, light on resources generally. Email support usually responds within a few hours, also good support forum, and a 30 day money-back warranty .

    Cons

    Antivirus scans slowly on big compressed files, but that's adjustable. Don't know how many of the advanced Kaspersky features the ZA version incorporates, but for $20 via ZA site upgrade discount, not complaining..

    Automatic antivirus updates took 3 days to start up, support couldn't explain that; but there is a 21 day "learning period" for the software, and it works fine now.

    "sweet"

    June 2, 2007  |   By strawberryangel

    Version: ZoneAlarm Antivirus 7.0

    Pros

    fast, easy to use, good looking, and hopefully it's not as annoying as other AV products.

    Cons

    No matter how many times I ticked the 'Load ZoneAlarm Anti-virus at startup,' the tick just kind of disappear somewhere and so, ZAA never show up at startup

    "Not Vista capable still!"

    May 29, 2007  |   By scottgo64

    Version: ZoneAlarm Antivirus 7.0

    Pros

    I love the way ZA protected my computer with it's free firewall. It was great as an internet security suite.

    Cons

    It's hard to believe that it is still NOT Vista compatable. There is no indication when it will be ready for Vista. I had to go back to Norton's because of this delay.
