    "BEWARE Zonealarm Free disables Homegroup in Win 7 x64"

    November 9, 2010  |   By kgh007

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    I have been using Zonealarm for 10+ years, but recently have been having an issue trying to set up homegroup on my laptop running Win 7 Pro x64.

    Cons

    Zonealarm Free disables Homegroup in Win 7 x64, after long hours searching the net I found this out on the Zonealarm forum, you have to upgrade to a full version in order to enable IPv6 networking to allow Homegroup to work.

    Summary

    Seth please test this feature of the free version and adjust your review accordingly.

    "Still not stable on Windows 7 64-bit."

    November 7, 2010  |   By ianders1

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Killer firewall for all other versions of Windows

    Cons

    This latest version still crashes Windows 7 64-bit for no reason whatsoever.

    Summary

    I really hope they get it to work on Windows 7 64-bit someday. I miss this firewall that I had been using forever...

    "Best Free Firewall Out There!!!"

    November 3, 2010  |   By snowballs05

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Easy to install, easy to use, effective, works with every operating system I have used it on... even my 64 bit Windows 7's and Vista's! It is even easy to temporarily disable for those application installations that need it...

    Cons

    I am not sold yet on the toolbar and search engine... though I am glad they give the option of un-checking it during installation. I am continuing to evaluate...

    Summary

    I spend a lot less time scanning my system for malware using this wonderful product.. I have now used it on all of my operating systems without any trouble for a significant period of time. I think it is time to move up to the paid version to see how they can wow me even more! Oh, and it doesn't hog up resources either! Who wouldn't want it? It's free!!!!!

    "conflicts with AVG 2011"

    October 31, 2010  |   By michelcharlebois

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Have always used it. Still consider it great, even though I have had a virus or two

    Cons

    it interferes with AVG 2011 whereas it did not with previous versions. I believe the parties are aware of the problem and I hope they are resolving the issue.

    "Like going home again.."

    October 29, 2010  |   By jesusandhislawyer

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    Not the best for leak,, But you know what your getting..

    Cons

    Want more toys to play with..

    Summary

    I first used Z.A. in 2005 as a full security suite and was not impressed with the product or customer service.. Later using the stand alone firewall I liked the feel except for the constant nagging of asking about a program you allowed 8 times before. The cool news, I have been using it for the past months and installing on clients computers who get it and love it. It,s one of a few if any who has grabbed the tiger by the tail and listen to users feed back and created a decent, not perfect free firewall that will get your preference right the first time, And go fairly light on the system..

    "Seemed to work as good as any other freeware firewall."

    October 26, 2010  |   By ih8bugz

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    User friendly

    Cons

    No sandbox feature.

    Summary

    I was not able to configure my wireless network properly using the automatic feature or manually. Every time a device entered or left the network I got the prompt to handle as internet or network device. My response made no difference, it would log it, but promp again anyway. I uninstalled and reinstalled and had the exact same problem. I passed on this firewall because of this.

    "An excellent protection"

    October 26, 2010  |   By Judith Sinclair

    Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 9.2.076

    Pros

    It gives very good protection in a wide variety of situations

    Cons

    It was incompatible with AVG latest issue. The two have worked in harmony for some years but the new AVG did not work with Zone alarm

    Summary

    I like the product very much but decided in favour of AVG and so, with regret, had to uninstall Zone alarm.
