“Lucky I used System Restore”

Written on: 19/01/2012 by BobTech (27 reviews written)

Something in my XP SP3 i3 PC has been connecting with Chinese servers and exchanging traffic without my knowledge. Unable to find any malware with Hijack This and two top anti-virus/malware programs, I decided to install ZoneAlarm Free which used to be a very good program, to identify the process causing it. The installer program downloaded over 30MB of main program then after a lot of hard drive activity declared that the system needed to be rebooted. The system completely hung up part… Read Full Review

I have been a Zone Alarm customer for about six years now.
Zone Alarm used to be first class. It is now frustrating and slows my PC's down tremendously. It has been well and truely overtaken.
Customer service is abismal.

“I have the ZA extreme security suite and I have to say...”

Written on: 18/05/2009 by localpunter (5 reviews written)

I have the ZA extreme security suite and I have to say I am impressed with what I have seen. I have used ZA in the past where it was a total resource hog but the 2009 version has significantly changed that. Really easy to use and a good forum site which ofers loads of help if you are stuck. I have never had any viruses when using this software which could be coincedence but I like it anyway. Yes it does ask whether to allow or deny but I like to have this control over what my PC is allowing… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2008 by john080347 (1 review written)

Too intrusive I have found, constantly asking whether to allow or deny a program to run even when the "Always Allow" is checked. Slows the system and slow to load. Renewal cost is too high for me, $49.95 is a lot more than other much better software in my opinion.

Overall, not a bad package but I find it tedious to set up therefore I do not recommend the ZoneAlarm Security Suites… Read Full Review

“Very good overall PC protection.”

Written on: 08/07/2008

Very good overall PC protection.
It scans everything you access, copy, etc.
It goes beyond virus protection by looking at any suspicious behaviour from programs.
It can learn, you are asked to allow or deny programs doing things. This has helped me learn a lot more about what my pc is actually doing, even when it looks like it's not doing anything.

ZA does load a bit slow at startup, but when compared to Norton it's a lot faster.
Since I've started using it, I've never looked back… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2007 by Escargot (1 review written)

Only version of ZoneAlarm I ever got to run half decently was 5.5.
Latest version is awful. Uninstall doesn't uninstall properly and you have to use safe mode and even reg edit to clean up the mess.

DON'T GO THERE!… Read Full Review

“Zonelabs was basically untouchable with its 6.1...”

Written on: 03/07/2007 by Sighn (2 reviews written)

Zonelabs was basically untouchable with its 6.1 versions of ZA, but there have been some serious problems with the software since then. The security side of the program is still top notch, in operation. The most annoying thing is when ZA crashes, due to a Truevector error, and waits for a response from the user before it will restart to continue protection.
ZA seems to be a lot more stable when installed on a system that has no leftovers of previous ZA installations (google for instructions on… Read Full Review

I will not renew my subscription with ZoneLabs, mainly because the AV update no longer works for a large number of their subscribers and the company can't be bothered to fix what is clearly their problem.
The worst customer service I have ever come across - even in the IT world!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2007 by hopemaster (3 reviews written)

Amazing. I use the free version, and it does the job amazingly. I would recommend this over Nortan anytime. Even though it does not include the anti virus software i use other programs to search for viruses regularly, and delete them.


(Been using for over 2 years, Not one problem.)… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2006 by ed2975 (1 review written)

The ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm Security Suites software is an incredibly slow resource hog. It does not protect, and I wouldn't even accept it as a gift.

It is utterly useless! It's difficult to load, and it slowed my entire PC down considerably. It claimed it could find spyware, but it overlooked quite a few large infections. It got to the point where my computer would take 10 minutes to start up… Read Full Review

Fahimtm's Response to ed2975's Review

Written on: 25/05/2007

The only problem is with your computer not with ZoneAlarm... your computer must have at least 512mb ram for it 2 run perfectly..probably you haven't got that... consider trying 512ram.

Written on: 14/09/2004 by lvckyluke (1 review written)

ZoneAlarm Security Suites are using the scan-engine antivirus which is developed together with ComputerAssociates. It also uses the same definition database with eTrust EZ AntiVirus. Yup, it means you can download virus definition updates manually from eTrust website and then use it for ZoneAlarm (extract to: C:WINDOWSsystem32ZoneLabs). Cause as I know ZoneAlarm doesn't put the updates to download manually in their website. :)

Overall ZoneAlarm Security Suites has same capabilities with… Read Full Review
