    Default Regret to say, 7.1.254.000 still seems unstable on Vista, even after SP1

    Hello.

    I've been a zonealarm firewall user for years... but getting it work on Windows Vista certainly seems like it has been a long path.

    About two weeks ago, after upgrading to Vista SP1, I installed the "newest" zonealarm firewall, namely version 7.1.254.000.

    You will see elsewhere in this forum, I have had trouble getting it to work with the "Webshield" component of [a v a s t] anti-virus. That issue remains unresolved.

    However, there seems to be a bigger issue. When ZA is installed, whether or not [a v a s t] is installed, eventually my computer will freeze up or crash. I can't predict exactly how or why. Sometimes it is a freeze. Sometimes there is a blue screen. Sometimes things just slow down to a crawl, and then I try to restart, and the computer freezes in the log-off process. I have tried selective startups with and without many combinations of other software running. I have tried when I have disabled ALL non-standard microsoft software except ZA, but eventually, the computer will crash. With any combination of other software (or with none at all) I can seemingly leave my computer up without restarting it indefinitely. Typically, without ZA, I reboot only when some external event forces it (like a software upgrade, or a need to power down the computer to take it somewhere). But with ZA up, I am rebooting every couple of days at least, sometimes more, and most frequently I have to do a hard reset with the power button.

    So I will, unfortunately, have to uninstall ZA again.

    Pity. I used to love this software.

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
    Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Hi!I don't think there is a notification list for the free ZA versions....You find the current beta software here:http://www.zonealarm.com/betaBut free is not tested. Usually ZASS and sometime ZAPRO are tested.Cheers,Fax
