    "Good - but..."

    November 28, 2010  |   By cpt_Wolf_Net

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    installation, UI, general functionality, security

    Cons

    no GPRS connection anymore, freezing apps, slowing connection

    Summary

    I experienced some issues after installation. Well, sw is doing what it should do, but even allowed, GPRS connection wasn't working - reporting "radio off", only shutdown of ZoneAlarm solved problem, Battlefield Bad company was giving me ping 250 to servers where I normally have 50 - shutdown of ZoneAlarm solved issue, internet pages was slow loading. Few times happened, that whole fulscreen app freezed. Ok, this is probably not related to ZoneAlarm, but after uninstall - everything works fine again. - So I am going to look around for something else, may be not so good, but not annoying so much.

    My Wins - Windows 7 Home Premium - 64b - i5 CPU- updated on regular basis.

    "Useless with iTunes"

    November 27, 2010  |   By salem629

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Easy to install

    Cons

    Won't allow me to update and Sync my iTouch with iTunes! Conflicts with my anti-virus program.

    Summary

    Have to disable every time I want to download anything or Sync my iTouch. So what the sense in using it at all!!!

    "Works well - After you learn how to use it"

    November 20, 2010  |   By ben998

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Will give you controll what comes and goes from your computer.

    Cons

    You will need some knowledge of the programs on your computer, or you may accidently prevent a program you need to access the internet from doing so (e.g. don't deny Firefox access to internet, properly identify your network).

    Summary

    Learn it, use it. It works very well and has been stable on Win 7, XP under heavy use. If you are looking for one click does it all for you, move to something else. pr@brscpa.com

    Windows 7 - 64bit is a complete fail. Flurry of problems upon install. Not even worth listing them.
    Zonealarm continues to work well with 32bit operating systems. Very sad to have to remove ZoneAlarm from our list of software recommended to clients.

    "Faster than previous version. (No tool bar installed.)"

    November 14, 2010  |   By how

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Just installing it was enough to speed up my computer over last version. This was going to be my last attempt to resolve that problem before going else ware.

    Cons

    Features of the tool bar are not in the main application. Need of tool bar to get the "extra" protection is foolish. If tool bar features are so great why not incorporate them in main app.

    Summary

    Installation was very easy and straight forward. Automatic detection and set up of network and apps is very convenient. So far, protection seems good.

    "Seems to run fine w/o problems for past 2 years."

    November 14, 2010  |   By jimbmw

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Easy to install, and compatible with Anti-virus programs

    Cons

    None that I can detect.

    Summary

    Originally had problems with getting M/S updates using the AVG anti-virus and it's firewall. Didn't like bare bones Windows firewall so found Zone Alarm firewall and Windows update problems went away. Now using MSE for antivirus with Zone Alarm firewall, and IO Bit's Advanced System Care to clean up spyware etc. IO Bit's s/w seems to work better than CCleaner, fixes more registry problems. Worked so well, I opted for the paid version (only difference in paid version seems to be that it executes DAILY automatically and worth the $12.99 promo pricing).
