    "Beautiful Internet Security Protection"

    August 08, 2012   |   By Ra3S

    Version: ZoneAlarm Pro AntiVirus + Firewall 10.2.064

    Pros

    ZoneAlarm is a very good program in computer security!
    -Two-way Firewall
    -Antivirus/Antispyware
    -Antiphishing
    -Download Protection

    Cons

    Why is it bad to him, and thus slows down the system is recommended on a dual-core system with at least 2 GB of ram

    Summary

    antivirus software is very good, if you want something not slows down system I recommend avast!

    "heavy on computer, difficult to remove"

    June 21, 2012   |   By safe_gate2003

    Version: ZoneAlarm AntiVirus + Firewall 10.2.057

    Pros

    A known brand name for personal FW. the interface is simple and easy to use, the FW is powerfull still.

    Cons

    I know zone alarm as a PC firewall, a good FW for personal computers. I installed this product to test it on my personal Dell laptop with i5 processor. the installation was easy, but, updating the antivirus was overkill, more than 100 mb of data download, it took an hour through my cable connection, it seems that the zone alarm def server was not performing well. i noticed slow performance on my PC, difficulties to connect to public wifi zone, i had to turn zonealarm off in order to connect, and slow internet browsing. after one week, I decided to remove, it, when the nightmare started, you can't simply uninstall it, it gives you error message. After searching the forums, tried with several ways including safe mode, no hope, it does not leave your PC!! finally, I found a discussion on the zone alaram forum, there is a small exec file you need to donwload in order to remove the application... finally I made it and no more zone alarm on my PC

    Summary

    I think zonealarm is no more like before, and seriously, who needs a personal firewall on his PC if you have a microsoft FW by default. the AV is new, I tested it on fake virus it quarantined it, while other AV products removed it. it slows down the PC, and needs knowledge when you manage the FW.

    I don't recommend it for home users.

    "~ YOU'RE FOREWARNED ~"

    May 24, 2012   |   By Gernard_Blansteen

    Version: ZoneAlarm AntiVirus + Firewall 2012

    Pros

    Not a thing. Nothing. It ruined the reliability of the old ZoneAlarm

    Cons

    You better seriously consider reviewing all the reviews here before downloading this mess. Crashed (2) computers. Computer would constantly freeze up. Both computers took over 7 minutes to start up after installing. I went to uninstall it, only to find out that still, both computers now take 5+ minutes to start up.

    Summary

    This piece of software has destroyed the reliability of what use to be my favorite firewall. It is a resource hog that you have no control over. And something is v-e-r-y fishy about this new suite. Now, both my computers have never been the same after installing, and quickly uninstalling.

    DON'T DO IT. Save yourself the headache that I and countless other people now have to endure.

    "great software"

    May 22, 2012   |   By dishhead

    Version: ZoneAlarm AntiVirus + Firewall 2012

    Pros

    its free but harsh works but to what end

    Cons

    ok first im no novice to the software world i had been useing avast for over ten years and like others i had noticed different things going on with my computer site blocking was the least of it i have a dell i560 with 4 gigs of memory its not slow by any means but with avast installed it blocked some of my updates from microsoft and as soon as i uninstalled it they installed on reboot so made me wonder just what other updates had been blocked and avast itself updates were less than perfect so i made the move to zonealarm and im glad i did it doesnt get in the way unless its needed it works great and has stoped many invasions on my computer and works smoothly doing so check point great job keep up the great work you are doing we all need realy good security software and this is one of the best i have seen in awhile thanks again check point.

    Summary

    solid antivirus +firwall work very smoothly together all around great software and its time for a trustworthy company to lead the way zone alarm has been a name for years and under the new logo makes it even better kicks ass bottom line.

    Updated on May 22, 2012

    "I gave up on ZoneAlarm Antivirus"

    May 16, 2012   |   By fandmgii

    Version: ZoneAlarm AntiVirus + Firewall 2012

    Pros

    I guess that the firewall is still OK.

    Cons

    Cannot exist with other network security products. Killed SSH tunneling.

    Summary

    I have been using ZoneAlarm for more years than I can remember because of the easy configurablity. I use Norton Internet Security(with the firewall turned off) for my antivirus protection. It has saved my bacon on multiple occasions. When I upgraded to ZoneAlarm Antivirus, I found out that I could no longer use SSH tunneling. When I contacted customer support, ZoneAlarm's tech said that ZoneAlarm categorically cannot co-exist with Norton. Too bad. I have no experience with the reliability of ZoneAlarm as an antivirus product, so it had to go.

    Updated on May 16, 2012

    I forgot to mention. I must have SSH tunneling to connect to my workplace.

    Cons

    5-13-2012:

    On Dial Up Takes 4 Hours Download--Then Disaster--Computer DELL L T Slows Down--Out Of 4 Browsers Will Not Open Or Freezes Up + Cause Other Misc Problems-- Zone Alarm Uses Kaspersky Lab Antivirus--You Cannot Delete It (Remove Out Registry) Unless Delete Zone Alarm Firewall--I Did And Reinstalled Original Zone Alarm Free Firewall--Which I've Use Since Day One!!

    "GREAT, EASY TO INSTALL, EASY TO USE"

    May 09, 2012   |   By chopper1954

    Version: ZoneAlarm AntiVirus + Firewall 2012

    Pros

    VERY EASY TO INSTALL, SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD TO USE. I FOUND IT VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A NOVICE. WITH THE ANTI-VIRUS INCLUDED IT PERFORMS TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD

    Cons

    I HAVE NOT COME ACROSS ANY

    Summary

    IF YOU ARE A NOVICE IT IS EASY TO USE. I WOULD SUGGEST AFTER USING IT I WOULD BUY IT, BUT THEIR AGAIN IF YOU CAN NOT AFFORD TO, THEN THE FREE ONE IS STILL GREAT TO USE. THIS IS GREAT FOR THE NOVICE AND THE COMPUTER SAV.

    "Better than ever!"

    May 08, 2012   |   By acemod13

    Version: ZoneAlarm AntiVirus + Firewall 2012

    Pros

    Powerfull Firewall
    Firewall + AV Engine = Win!
    All the ZoneAlarm Epicness
    New services since 7.1 (I guess)

    Cons

    Too heavy for Vista/7 on requirements
    Too slow on updates...
    Not as groundbraking as Avast or AVG
    Most Hated GUI!!!!

    Summary

    Still rough but gives more defence. Recomended for anyone who wants 360 deg. defence. For more ground-breaking security or AV-only solutions, don-t look here.
