    "Amazing results, simple software."

    January 19, 2013  |   By AndyVonschweal

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    -Thousands of access attempts blocked.
    -Scans your files for viruses for you.
    -Easy to use.
    -Free

    Cons

    Personally, I haven't had any issues with it. It doesn't pop up constantly wanting me to purchase an upgrade, so I love it.

    Summary

    I bought a new computer and needed some anti-viral software. This is the way to go!

    "Protection Without Pain"

    January 19, 2013  |   By missingamerica

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    Ease of installation, very high virus detection/removal rankings from well-known sources - and now it just works without pestering me.

    Cons

    None, as ZoneAlarm AV+FW installed like a breeze and has been working quietly and unobtrusively ever since.

    Summary

    I pay attention to antivirus reviews by well-known reputable sources; when ZoneAlarm Antivirus + Firewall climbed way past my then AV solution I decided to try it out. Glad I did; installation was a breeze with the firewall side immediately and correctly picking up my network information. Now ZoneAlarm quietly does its job of protecting my computer without bothering me at all - but if I want more information on what programs on my computer "talk" over my local network or the internet, ZoneAlarm lets me dig down and see them. That, I really like.

    "Murder call 911"

    January 13, 2013  |   By mezcardi

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    I've used ZA firewall for years(since '99)on my older low RAM machines and loved it, especially the ability to stop all internet activity quickly. But!!!

    Cons

    once I downloaded the new version with Anti-virus I was very disappointed in the Interface. Then Disaster! On Jan 11 '13 an AV Update notice so I clicked on it while I worked on my Dell Mini 10. Now this could be all my fault as I wasnt paying much attn. but suddenly my machine started turning off and on loading Windows personal setting then saving personal settings shutting down and repeating. No keystroke would help and turning off and letting it sit awhile no help either.

    Summary

    I will try it again and be careful upgrading. But if it does it again I'll go back to AVG.

    "One of the best freeware Antivirus/Firewall on the Net"

    January 12, 2013  |   By loyal6

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    This Freeware can save your pc if you learn to use it properly.
    It is just great for those on a tight budget and who need to use the internet.

    Cons

    For me there is no con - Just learn how to use it. There are many experts on the internet who can guide you and you can ask ZoneAlarm directly.

    Summary

    I was introduced to ZoneAlarm many years ago and though I would like to purchase the Pro version, I was never in a position to do so and maintain it. Health challenge kept me out of the earning arena for more than most and so I had to do with the best that was available. And I can testify that ZoneAlarm free has saved my PC countless times. I would recommed the Antivirus Free Firewall anytime.
    My observation is that after reading queries by users on blogs and experts sites many users do not take the time to find out how to use it with other freeware to optimize their pcs.
    Thank you, ZoneAlarm is among the best, and I look forward to more available options.
    Again my gratitude for helping us who need freeware to exist on the internet.

    "Kernel problem."

    January 11, 2013  |   By Bonuspack

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    I loved Zone alarm free firewall version since I met it some years ago. Everything was okay till I tried to update to the new version (2013).

    Cons

    I have had some troubles trying to reboot my system due to a Kernel problem. I restored my system and everything was okay. I used my antivirus to check my pc in order to find something that makes me find the problem, but there was no virus found. I downloaded the firewall again and when I rebooted my system, the blue screen with a kernel problem showed again and the pc tried to reboot but it showed the problem once and once again. I would like to continue using your firewall, but I think that something is not right, what could it be? (I couldn't read the complete blue screen warning because it disappeared very fast)
