Editors' Review

+
An effective and easy-to-use firewall program, ZoneAlarm does a great job of keeping your PC safe from a variety of threats. ZoneAlarm makes configuring a firewall, which sounds like a daunting task to the majority of computer users, incredibly easy with a wizard. Maintaining and updating settings also is a snap when you're using the stylish interface and its simple slider controls. The program's Zones feature also allows you to assign different security levels for a local network and for the Internet. We found ZoneAlarm very good at recognizing and automatically including settings for our local network. In all our tests, the firewall guarded against all external and internal threats it encountered. Therefore, we think ZoneAlarm is an excellent firewall choice for just about any average user.

"Not bad at the bottom line, but still"

December 17, 2005  |  By Trigano

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 6.0.667.000

Pros

Provides an acceptable protection more or less, but what can you expect from a free product?

Cons

Consumes a lot of computer resources/energy and the panoply of features offered for free is tiny, say neglectable. But again, what can you demand from a product you didn't pay for? I wouldn't upgrade it for the paid version.

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 6.0.667.000

Pros

Now I know why Zone Alarm has fallen off the charts. To make things worse, I PAID to upgrade my Zone Alarm. Money well wasted !!!

Cons

Hackers got in 2 times. Had to shut off computer. Computer got taken over. What a waste of money to buy this Zone Alarm.

"good"

December 12, 2005  |  By hijack masta

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm 6.0.667.000

Pros

VERY POWERFUL! The cleanest to use software ever! Blocks inbound and outbound protection and has a LOT of settings for you to choose from, but I will still NOT recommend you buy the pro version or any other not free version don't even download the free version.

Cons

why I said to not download this is that it has 1 major bug that everyone will notice! And that is some times it will make your internet connection go off and after you uninstall it and then restart your computer your internet connection goes back on, hope zone labs will fix this in version 7, but still this is a great program and it is worth waiting until the next version comes out.
