"Needs alot of work"2.0 starson by BobHeron
Pros: Firewall is Improved
Cons: will not auto-update and shows errors in Windows Secuirty & on task bar
Summary: No AntiVirus auto updates and warning in Windows Security Center, that ZoneAlarm anti virus is in need of update . ( Even after forced manule update.
I also see that when running an anti virus scan that it only scans 12,000 files . My PC has over 200,000 files on it ,for comparison,
NOD 32 scans completely. On using AOL's free version of Kaspersky anti virus , it scans over 195,000 files completely, and auto-updates every hour , also gives scaned files reports upon completion.
ZA's version 7 seems to be a stripped down beta & at best, "a step down in anti virus security and saftey " ...
I decided to discontiue using ZA when the CA anti virus updating problem started a few weeks ago, and I find the new ZA version 7
not any better .....
Uninstaller leaves a complete mess, their are lots and lots of crys for help on the Zone Alarm Users BBS Forum pleading for help with uninstall issues !
I have atleast 10 months left on my ZA Internet Secuirty paid subscription , but I would rather not fool around with ZA 7 ISS at this point.
The new ZA 7 's firewall seems much better .
Zone Alarm users Forum is just full of complaints and problems with ZoneAlarm Internet Suiet 7 .
I know that these comments are completly different from C NET's Review , chek it out for yourself on Zone Alarms User Forum .
