    "ZONE ALARM TOTAL SECURITY SUIT"

    August 22, 2008  |   By UberDevilDog

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Pros

    Good interface, decent protection, lets little slip by. Has ability to learn what programs you use and let them have internet. Cool system tray icon that shows internet traffic. Strong firewall.

    Cons

    USES LOTS OF RESOURCES!!!! Average use is about half a gig of RAM. As said before, it wants you to schedule a scan every month and they take some time, it does Virus scan, THEN spyware. Doesn't update very often. Can't install on a 64 bit system.

    Summary

    Good program, worth the money, but I am going to try AVG Internet Security Suit, then maybe Microsoft's OneCare thing and some others before making a decision on which on to buy. Hope this helps! <(^.^)>

    "Inadequate"

    August 20, 2008  |  

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Pros

    It did i'ts job fairly well.

    Cons

    Doesn't find all viruses

    Summary

    I had this software on my notebook for one year. At the end of the year I decided to change to Kaspersky, which found a number of viruses that ZoneAlarm did not catch.

    "Effective, Cooperative, Friendly, Informative Progam"

    August 15, 2008  |   By mostimport

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Pros

    Unlike Norton, I haven't seen any viruses get through. Also, when there is an alert, it gives you an understandable explanation of what's going on and gives you the option to launch a ZoneAlarm webpage if there's not enough info on the Alert popup. Those webpages are SO helpful, describing exactly the situation you're encountering with invaluable advice, like ZA is in it with you. I've never gotten this from Norton.

    It doesn't turn the (sub)title bar red or give you an "!" next to virus/spyware protection if you have Auto Updates turned off. That was the worst thing I hated about Norton.

    Good price @$40 for both a Firewall and full Antivirus plus Spyware protection.

    The system tray icon changes to a moving bar graph when it's scanning so that you know why things aren't happening immediately.

    In the main window it shows horizontal activity indicators for download and upload traffic, something I've not seen in Norton but a comfort to know ZAISS7 is monitoring it all.

    The user interface is very friendly and not overly complicated, though there are plenty of options.

    I've never had a problem with e-mail before I got this product, so after trying it, I turned e-mail and IM protection off since I don't usually IM. I didn't like the toolbar it installed in OE. I was amazed it actually removed it when I turned e-mail protection off! The sign of a good program that doesn't force itself on you.

    There were no incessant reminders my update service is about to expire, unlike Norton. I can see that information for myself clearly displayed in the Overview pane.

    Unlike Panda, it works on my Windows XP SP1 OS. I recommend this to everyone with the min. sys. req. who is willing to use this exclusively for firewall/antivirus/antispyware safety.

    I also like the Help screen that pops up when I click on it in a certain window of the program. It opens to the exact topic for the category I was in, service I haven't gotten so well elsewhere.

    Firewall is fine. Privacy, ID theft not used. Will buy.

    Cons

    You do have to schedule scans at least monthly or it will flag you for that. Pretty stupid, it seems. If it's protecting me, then it shouldn't be very likely that something slipped onto my PC such that I should need a scan every week. This is fairly insignificant, though.

    The trial is only 15 days. 30 would be more reasonable.

    Updates leave you clueless as to specifically what it's doing for the two minutes it's downloading and installing the updates. It does tell you generally, but I begin to wonder if it's OK when the progress bar is usually empty or showing no progress. Anyway, it only failed the first time I tried it.

    It does slow down my PC at startup to load itself, but not too much. Usually I keep my PC asleep when not in use so there's no bootup. Likewise, programs are delayed in launching slightly while ZAISS7 does its "on-access scanning", but it's not a major inconvenience. I just wish you could create a list of programs to exempt from on-access scanning.

    I also wish you could set boundries for your manual/auto PC scans besides the size of the file, such as exempting known program and document folders, but you can only add programs (apparently not folders) to exclude after a PC scan by choosing the item IF it appears in the scan results.

    "SUCKS! no 64-bit support; will not install on 64-bit OS"

    August 8, 2008  |   By archimedeze

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Cons

    Box says it supports "Windows 2000/XP/Vista"; says NOTHING about 32-bit vs 64-bit. ZoneAlarm does NOT work with 64-bit OS; and they REFUSE to give refunds.

    So much better than Norton. Loads fast. Great security. Unless someone comes out with something better I'll never have anything else.

    "Very good"

    August 5, 2008  |   By BigMarioMorra

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Pros

    - Great virus/spyware protection

    - Many options

    - Dosen't slow down the PC

    - Keeps itself up to date daily

    Cons

    - At first, in the learning prosess, it might be kinda annoying for some that you often have to click ALLOW or DENY but it's well worth it after a while.

    "Zone Alarm Security Suite 7.0483"

    August 1, 2008  |   By southernman142

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Pros

    I have had Zone Alarm for about 5 years. I have had McAfee and all the rest. Zone Alarm is the best by far. It can be very techincal ot you can use the "suggested" setting.

    Cons

    Sometime you can adjust it so much that it won't let you on.

    "Terrible"

    July 31, 2008  |   By Ronnie1213

    Version: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483

    Pros

    It does work!

    Cons

    It never would fully load in XP! I had it on my system since December 2007. The console would lock up and I couldn't do adjustments to the software. This is after 10 clean installs recommended by Zone Alarms customer service form. I couldn't view PDF files even with the lastest Adobe upgrades. Zone Alarm was blocking something else too but I can't remember. I had the lastest upgrades from Zone Alarm but it never fuctioned like the older versions. I was a Zone Alarm customer for 8 years and I always had trouble installing their software. It always seem to work ok in the past after awhile. At least the console wouldn't lock up. But is seems to have gotten worse not better over the years.
