    Running my Win 7 machine for quite some time and have used various security software and still had to endure running my system while compromised. I needed the system to write programs for C# and had spent a lot of time in the software environment and hard-disk setting up operating systems and partitions for various development learning techniques and use a lot of programs some more trustworthy than others but needed regardless. After using big name/paid software I was still experiencing full system control being lost through various windows exploits. With a high frequency of attacks coming through the likes of Firefox and Google. I remembered how effective Zone Alarm was and run it on another computer on my home network and it picked up Trojans but more importantly give me back proper administrative network control with use of data monitors. I still did a DOD Format of the hard drives and installed Zone alarm and switched to a more secure browser and the system is running at full-tilt


    none for me


    Thanks for an amazing free software release and I don't normally do reviews so that saying something!!
