For many users that are looking for a good anti-virus/firewall application, don’t try Zone Alarm Extreme. Unless you are very skilled with computer configurations and have the patience & now-how to configure this over-sized mother of an application, I highly recommend that you stay clear of this baby.
The program will slow your computer down to a near Holt, it will take up to 40 minutes to down load the virus definitions, even if you have a very fast connection with your ISP. You will have extreme difficulty accessing your internal network and your computer will run very, very slow.
If you do decide to install this application, do so, on the trail basis only. Do not apply the recommended install procedure, use the custom install, but be very carefully, as the default install procedure is very flawed.
I have been using Zonealarm for many years, this one kills it for me, just tossed away nearly $60 on a piece of cripple-ware.

Good application, does what its told to do. Trial period 21 days is a good try out, purchasing it via online secure website using IE8 failed, some sort of java encountered problem, but using Firefox worked just great. The favourites checker, which checks for dead links failed, causing the application to hung, but other than that, all in a good little tweak package.

Can only load 43 albums(about 600 songs) then freezes. Try again and still freezes. Don't see much use for this program yet?
