    Not only is their software mediocre, now they join the ranks of SCAREWARE programs that pretend you're infected to make you buy an upgraded version.

    DANGEROUS JUNK. COMPUTER FROZE. I tried Installing on Windows 7 64-bit and half way through during a Windows Update my computer froze, even the cursor wouldn't move. When I reset my computer to log onto Windows it showed some error code on the bottom of the boot screen and started the reboot cycle again. It took 30 minutes using System Restore to fix the damage it caused, not to mention another 30 minutes to UN-install and Re-Install the programs that were changed after the Recovery Point.

    ZoneAlarm used to be a good product, before being bought by Checkpoint, but now they're WORTHLESS. I'll use the Windows 7 Firewall and my SPI Router instead. If I had to use a 3rd party Firewall, I would use Comodo Firewall.

    the trouble folks have with zonealarm, or any other software product, is they don't understand the way some products conflict. if there are remnants of norton, comodo, outpost, whatever, they're going to have problems with any software firewall. i've used trials of nearly every software firewall, and zonealarm always keeps ending up back on my machines.
