    "Some issues, but otherwise great!"

    January 29, 2013  |   By ManekiNeko666

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    Works as advertised, free... Can't beat that!

    Cons

    The only problems I've had is when Zone Alarm AntiVirus detects aspects of Quickbooks 2010 as possible malware. I keep reporting it and keep telling the program to ignore these files, but they still show up every few days, when the system is scanned.

    Summary

    I would highly recommend this software to others and have personally installed it on numerous systems of friends who use me as their IT Department.

    "THE BEST FREE SOFTWARE I HAVE EVER USED"

    January 28, 2013  |   By david_mhambi

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    Since I a friend received viral emails from me, he referred me to Zone Alarm and hence from the day I installed it I have never had a serious virus problem or any sort of complaint from people who are in my address book.

    Cons

    THERE WAS SOME CLASHES WITH AVG THE SECURITY SOFTWARE I WAS USING AT THE BEGINING

    "Effective AV and Firewall"

    January 27, 2013  |   By Nachtengel84

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    I use ZA to keep my system clean from viruses and hackers. Coupled with other programs that I use in Firefox, my system has been completely clean for over a year. I would definitely recommend ZA for its effectiveness and due to the fact that it is not a memory hog as compared to other AV programs.

    Cons

    I have no complaints in regards to this program.

    Summary

    I have not experienced any problems with the system that I have and ZA. I run my OS on a SSD and my AV and browsers from a HDD with 16 GB memory coupled with a 3.22 GHz dual-core processor. I do not know how tZA performs on systems below these specifications.

    "Helps keep everything your computer does under control."

    January 26, 2013  |   By Aftershk1

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    Anything that tries to access my networks, or even run files by itself, Zonealarm warns me about, and it's saved me from many a malware attack over the years by letting me know about some hidden program that downloaded itself trying to launch & access the Internet, allowing me to investigate it and remove the offending program before it could try again (while Zonealarm thwarted it from accessing anything to begin with). The free antivirus is just icing on the cake.

    Cons

    Can sometimes cause issues when a game updates, with the Allow or Deny window for the updated program's attempt to access the network popping up underneath the full-screen game, making you have to hunt blindly for the Allow prompt. However, that's more my fault than Zonealarm, as they do have the Game Mode for that very reason, if I can ever remember to turn it on when appropriate. :P

    Summary

    I've used Zonealarm for a long time, since before it added firewall capability, and I've always enjoyed the added security it gives me in addition to the hardware firewall presented by my router. I suggest an installation of Zonealarm on every computer.

    "The best Firewall as always, and Now works even better!"

    January 25, 2013  |   By netzone101

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    Works perfect with vista!

    Cons

    None that I see

    Summary

    Been using them for years, and this version works the best yet.
    Don't worry about people who had a problem. If you download this into a PC that is a mess, what do you expect? Some people have multiple problems, and blame the software, when it is their PC mess. I would be scared to use anything else...
