    "ZA Hijacked my Browser"

    December 25, 2012  |   By dracopsylocke

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    The cons overwhelm the pros!!!

    Cons

    ZA Hijacked my Browser-Mozilla Firefox. Can't uninstall it and Oh how I tried everything. I can't find the system files anywhere on my PC. It has somehow integrated itself in Firefox Search. ZA behaves like a virus upon uninstall besides all of the memory hogging utilities and services. I didn't like all of the ZA ad popups when installed as well. There is no reliable Tech Support for ZA which is ridiculous. I regret ever installing it on my system. Now I have all sorts of issues. DON'T INSTALL ZA EVER!!! You will regret it.

    Summary

    Don't install this resource hog of a security application on your PC. It will Hijack your browser and cause unrepairable headaches. I still have a ZA migraine to no resolve.

    "Like being zoned and alarm? Get this!"

    August 15, 2012  |   By MeowWws

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    -Tremendous pop up each time a new application is run or installed, making sure you are alarmed!

    -Plenty of red signs and Alarmable ringtones whenever a packet is blocked or firstly installed.

    -Tons of software updates and problem detected before you can even start securing and fixing those flaws.

    Cons

    -Need to pay yearly so the alarm feature work properly.

    Summary

    Long story short, If you like being zoned and alarmed when there is no dangers, by all means get this software!

    I rather let hackers into my system

    "Great Free Firewall"

    August 11, 2012  |   By chernobylgoo

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    Free
    Very Secure
    Not very resource intensive
    Easy to update and register

    Cons

    Occasional popup from free version

    Summary

    I've been using the free version of ZoneAlarm for almost 6 years and have never had a problem with it. Whether surfing the net, downloading files, or playing games it has kept my computers safe from harm. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great firewall.

    "Major Memory Hogg."

    August 8, 2012  |   By ElObomo

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    Free - if you don't count the cost of system damages it causes.

    Cons

    Massive memory hogg - runs 290,000kbs in memory at idle. Updating to newer versions can be a LSD trip, not to mention a trip to the computer repair shop.

    Summary

    There are much better free options that work. Watch all the firewall reviews on YouTube and see what actually works - not what the company adverts say.

    Updated on Aug 8, 2012

    Watch this all you ZA freaks and tell me how safe you "feel" now:

    "Zonealarm is a security guard restricting access"

    August 7, 2012  |   By Firemedtech

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    I have been using Zonealarm for years to restrict program access. Maybe you want to use a program on your computer but you do not want it accessing the internet, Zonealarm can restrict this access.

    Cons

    Zonealarm slows down your connection speed a little bit.

    Summary

    Zonealarm is your program if you intend to secure your system while accessing the internet. THe only way to be totally secure is to unplug your access because the old saying is true. Build a better mousetrap, get a smarter mouse. If someone wants to find a way to get in your system, it is possible no matter what security you use.
    If you want to control access, restrict programs from setting themselves up as servers, restrict program transmission while maintaining a connection to the internet, Zonealarm is a program you want in your arsenal.
    I have been using Zonealarm for decades, I have ended up with viruses (yes, it was caused by user error). I will continue to use the Zonealarm firewall. The Zonealarm firewall is the next best thing to writing your access control list.

    "if you like wasting your valuable time, you'll love ZA"

    July 29, 2012  |   By waterhemlock

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    I can't think of any...sorry.

    Cons

    a whole spitload

    Summary

    When I updated to new version it tanked my machine...running like a snail with arthritis... then got BSOD. Took me tons of valuable time to undo this beyotch's damage using System Restore and every other damned thing. Yeah, it's true, they ruined this software. Going to check out Comodo, I guess. Thanks for nothing, Zone Alarm.

    "ZoneAZoneAlarm Free Firewall gets a 10 from Me"

    July 27, 2012  |   By PDHandsome

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    ZoneAlarm Free Firewall works quietly in the background. As far as I have determined, it is very effective. I have been using it for several years on two different computers, both XP and Vista, and highly recommend it. I see no reason for spending money on something like this, which is totally free!!!

    Cons

    Recently, it has gotten annoying - every time I boot up, it displays a screen asking me my opinion about it and inviting me to write a review. I am hoping that by doing this it will stop and leave me alone like it used to. I only gave it 4 stars out of 5 because of this annoyance.

    Summary

    ZoneAlarm Free works for me!
