"system crash"

July 27, 2005  |  By kglad

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 5.5.094

Pros

previous versions 4 and 5 caused no problems

Cons

my system crashes at the start of installation of zapro 6 and za security suite 6. i don't believe i've had a system crash for any reason, except during these installations, in the past 6 months.

and i've never had a problem with installation or running of za 4 or 5 through various upgrades and version updates.

"Nice but feels a little slow sometimes"

July 25, 2005  |  By augustino

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 5.5.094

Pros

In all fairness this is a good app, hasnt let me down, but the only grip I have is that sometimes it seems a little slow. But maybe it can be my computer acting weird..

Anyways, so far I have been happy with this app.

"best free firewall software"

July 25, 2005  |  By oxo_sg

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 5.5.094

Pros

it is free, easy to use and customize. ability to block intrusions easily or to automatically allow safe programs to pass through without having to repeatedly response, thus it does not interrupt what you do.

people who do not know how to fully use it's features will complain that it blocks access to the internet, certain websites or programs, which i find it's really stupid. those people should learn how to configure around and read the help files to understand the more complex functions.

a must have firewall, better than many commercial ones.

Cons

with it's anti virus detection function, it doesn't detect many anti virus programs, like AntiVir (which i used previously) and AVG 7 (which i happen to be using currently), but it does detect norton anti virus (which is quite useless, AVG 7 has detected many viruses that norton failed to).

relatively huge, due to pro version within it.

it locks up when i scan my computer for virus with AVG free edition 7 (solution is to disconnect from the internet totally, which is not much of a flaw, but a flaw nonetheless).

it also hangs my computer when i scan for spyware with ad aware (which i later found out was ad aware's flaw, solution is to disconnect from the internet).

despite some flaws, which can be dealt with easily, it's a program that i cannot do without.

"this is great!!"

July 20, 2005  |  By yprtb

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 5.5.094

Pros

the firewall guards not only on my network but on the computer as well. i have a 2000 computer and a xp computer. on my xp i have norton firewall. on the 2000 computer i have zonealarm.

Cons

the only thing that i dont like is my avast antiviruis isn't detected. Zonelarm doesnt take it as a antiviruis. so it doesnt detect it. (but heh its minor)

"This is the only security you will ever need."

July 20, 2005  |  By neounk

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 5.5.094

Pros

This product is VERY easy to use and is very secure. if a program doesn't need access to the internet to work then you can block it. it also keeps you safe from any hacker attacks and has great support with "Trusted Zones" if you're on a network. This program is MUST it keeps you secure and doesn't interfere with anything unlike other firewalls.

Cons

The only problem with ZoneAlarm is it slightly slows down your internet connection. However, I am on 28.8Kbps and I dont notice so even Dial-up users can use this.
