ZoneLabs has been quick to provide fixed versions of current products including ZoneAlarm Pro version 7.xxx. I understand that Microsoft not ZoneLabs may be the source of the current "BURP." Such is life on the Internet, BUT:
Sadly posts to this message board suggest that that the FIX may not be a fix.
In my experience too many ZoneAlarm Pro updates have caused client based problems including: operating system freeze, conflicts with anti virus software, and very slow processing on client's computer's.
I believe that ZoneAlarm Pro offers very good features and may(?) offer good protection.
However, I have found it necessary to implement the laborious "unistall ZoneAlarm Pro" process too many times.
I would appreciate user recommendations of tested and reliable client based software firewall alternatives to ZoneAlarm Pro.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
