ZoneAlarm

CNET 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 uses a simple wizard to make configuring a firewall, which seems like a daunting task to many computer users, incredibly easy. 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 allows you to assign different security levels for a local network and for the Internet. The most notable addition to version 6.5.7 is small but quite helpful. A new "Game Mode" lets you automatically allow or deny alerts when you're in the middle of playing a video game. 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. ZoneAlarm is an excellent firewall choice for just about any average user.

    "Great, free firewall"

    March 17, 2007  |   By Dawg Monitor

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.5.722

    Pros

    Zonealarm firewall is a great for protecting you for out and inbound access.

    For starters, you can change the level of firewall protecting on you computer, great for suspicious websites.

    Another is you have a choice for a program to allow to startup once or allowed to start or never startup. With the choice for the program to start up, you can allow it to go to the internet or never come out if you don't know if it works.

    While that, it monitors all of the programs coming in and out the computer. With all this happening, you can shutoff/lock down the incoming and outcoming internet.

    Cons

    It may or may not happened to you, but sometimes the software freezes up and later starts to work properly.

    "no problems what so ever.excellent,perfect,No.1."

    March 16, 2007  |   By BlueJay72

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.5.722

    Pros

    Experts have told me I don't need Firewall on Dialup.My computer crashed last thursday.Fault wasn.t that of zone alarm.I removed wash+go because I didn't like it.It removed 2 files when I uninstalled and my computer died.I had to start all over again.What a bummer.I lost a lot of stuff.Since I installed zone alarm mid december everything has been 100%.Before the crash it had blocked 31,288 browser attemps.I couldn't believe it,and on dialup yet.What my computer would be like without it,I don't even want to think of it.I am glad I did not listen to anyone,and installed it.I am 100% satisfied and reccomend it to anyone.You won't be sorry,just very,very,very happy as I am.

    Cons

    What do you mean,what I don't like.It's the best download I ever took.There's no a thing I can find wrong with it.It's perfect.

    "Not bad (for free) but it has problems."

    March 16, 2007  |   By angrykeyboarder

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.5.722

    Pros

    It's about the easiest to use free firewall tool out there. However...

    Cons

    Pros: It's about the easiest to use free firewall tool out there. However...

    Cons: I stopped using ZoneAlarm a few years ago when I learned that it blocked ports needed by many P2P programs including Bittorrent, by default.

    It's next to impossible to change that so it renders these programs useless.

    A better choice would be Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall. It's much more configurable (although not as easy to use as ZoneAlarm).

    ZoneAlarm has since added more nagging pop-ups that don't seem to be easily turned off (if you can at all). They appear every time you log into any user account in Windows.

    One insists you watch s tutorial (and it still pops up after you've consented to watch the tutorial).

    This program has gone downhill. As stated, I don't use it anymore, but friend (whose PC I help maintain) does.

    It's clear that ZoneLabs wants you to upgrade to ZoneAlarm Pro. I'd rather upgrade Kerio than ZoneAlarm, thank you very much.
