    Default Checkpoint using scare tactics

    I (and I'm sure others) got the following e-mail from Checkpoint. It looks like they're using the latest virus to drum up more business. They ought to know who already has their product and therefore is protected. I do not appreciate getting e-mails like this. The thing that won't copy in here is a banner saying "You might not be protected!" Well since I have a license for Zonealarm that just started and has almost a year left, I had **bleep**ed well better be protected. By them. And they should know that and refrain from sending e-mails to us.

    Every Client that Installs ZoneAlarm Security Software has the Option to Opt-Out of Receiving Emails from
    Check Points ZoneAlarm During the Installation of the Product.....
    At some point during the Installation the Client is Presented with an Dialog Page to Setup the Program for
    Automatic Updating of Antivirus/Spyware Definitions, Product Updates and Registration of the Software.
    At this Dialog Page the Client Enters their Email Address and has Two Options to Enable or Disable,
    and those Two Options are:
    (1) I would like to register ZoneAlarm so that I can receive updates
    (mandatory to receive antivirus/spyware, product updates, and registration)
    (2) I would like to receive Emails from ZoneAlarm about product updates and news
    (not mandatory - only optional)
    When Installing Any Software, Always Read What is Presented on the Screen
