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.

I read a review by PC Mag and there were too many Flaws in this Security Suite to warrant using it, although the AV was highly rated.
Now, ZA uses the Kaspersky AV engine and considering that Kapsersky rates at the top of all AVs and Security Suites, along with BitDefender, why not use either one of those two and have the best of the Best?
Kaspersky and Bitdefender are two of the few that are recognized by BOTH West Coast Labs AND IASA, so it stands to reason that their products are top notch!

just to keep it a bit serious, I have a question why are you all so disatisfied with it?

it is not bloatware like Symantec or is it? It is the most popular FW on the market so any words on why you are all rating it so low?

I am just curious, personaly I am not using FW behind my router, on a public network I can't decide between PC Tools and Online Armor, both are the most lightweight but still too complicated for average Joe (you don't need HIPs for start).

FW should be FW, not antivirus, antimalware, anti-asteroid-crash sort of thing...

If you want security, call your mother, otherwise be wise how you use your computer ;) and Vista FW is enough (much better than XPs one).

-1 for not being top in matousec's tests (although they are completely stupid keylogger like) and -1 for all the negative comments ;)

and I was going to try it once...heh

Better then the other full suites but like all software it's becoming bloated.

Your probably better just using the Pro version with a better AV like NOD32.

8.0.015.000 & 8.0.020.000 had some problems with slow shutdowns, but 8.0.059.000 fixes that. remaining is the problem with hourly av/as updates regardless of frequency setting. not a big deal if you've got a current rig, but it causes my poor p4 1.8 to chunk profusely in the middle of my backswing (stealing cpu cycles).

i tried hard to find a replacement for za. for the last 3 months, i've tried every internet security suite there is, some two or three times. but while outpost seemed to outdo za's firewall, za is the most complete package taking in all its other features (trying not to sound like a commercial).

i also tried piecing together what i thought was the best of each security component, and they were going to cost more than my pc was worth. while i'm not elated with za (rated 4 rather than 5), it is the most logical product on the market.

They'll keep releasing this garbage until the rating falls to zero. Avoid this crapware. Seriously.

I have had only minor problems with ZA over the years.

Call me stupid or old fashion but I still run Win2000 Pro 'cause it's bought and paid for ... I don't want/need to buy another computer with XP or Vista ... I like what I have, it does what I need it to do and it runs well on the "old" computer it is on.

I have the trial version of Norton Internet Security 2009 (on a Vista Ultimate 32 bit system) and like the speed that it shows in scanning and low CPU usage. It's too bad that Norton (and many others) are no longer supporting Win2000 (but that's a different story). I am tired of purchasing "new" versions of software to run on the "new" operating systems. ZA works well on what I have and I will continue to use it for the foreseeable future, as long as they support Win2000.

One-stop-shopping for bugginess, system slowdowns, inexplicable incompatibilities, crashes, and system freezes.

@ Lord - Dont be maroon, check out Untangle.com. There you find a 7 layer firewall, antivirus, antispam, anti ..... an allround solution that is even free, if you have a spare PC. Since we use it our software firewall and antirus is almost without work, meaning clean logs ;)
