    Default Installing ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 2006

    I am starting to think ahead to when my current security suite expires in November. I can get a copy of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 2006 (is this version 6.5?) for free from a friend who bought it a few years ago but never installed it. It is still in the original sealed retail box. Will there be any problems updating it if I install it in a few months? I believe the antivirus part of the 2006 version has been dropped in favor of another antivirus, right?
    If it makes any difference, I am currently running Windows XP Home, SP3.

    Thanks in advance.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Yes, the old 2006
    retail box of ZA Suite contains an CA av - 6.5, while all new ZA's 2008 starting with series 7.0xx/ 7.1xx
    will contain Kaspersky av.<hr>I am assuming your using a 7.0xx [ next time you post in this forum - please list your 'version # ' of your ZA firewall product.]<hr>What I would suggest:
    on expiration day or the day before
    - open the box an 'enter the new license key' from the sleeve of the CD-Rom ( do not install the CD-Rom ) &gt; Overview &gt; Product Info &gt; License Information &gt; Change License. Restart pc.<hr>Click here &gt; http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...=128507#M76485<hr>&gt; http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...ssage.id=73645 follow tips and guidelines.<hr>If there are any problems - call ZA Customer service - see link
    ^#M76485. Explain your situation; they should be able to resolve your situation.<hr>Now I asked you first to try the above method first, because it's the easiest way without going thru a laborious process of 'un-installing, installing CD-Rom, un-installing, installing/ upgrading, etc.' The critical piece is the 'license key' not the CD.<hr>NaiveMelody NYC - 8-14-08 - Shaft - Isaac Hayes

    Just an update to let NaiveMelody that the entering the new key per his/her instructions worked just fine. I did lose the few remaining days on the old key. It would have been nice to have gotten the full year which I had paid for, but it's not that big of a deal.

    FWIW, I had a terrible chat with ZA customer service. I asked what would happen if I waited for the old key to expire before entering the new key. I found the agent uninformed and rude. I don't think she listened and kept parroting her script. The ZA chat was not a good interaction at all.

    I'm sorry you had a bad experience with the Live Chat..Here is what I know about the dates on license keys..1.) if the new license is on a CD of the same type of ZoneAlarm.. he Key starts the day you install it..2.) if the Key is Renewed Online, the Key starts the day it was purchased, not the day it is installed on the ZA program..3.) if you purchase a 3 user License the License for all three begins to run down for all three as soon as the key is installed on the first Computer..4.) as far as remaining time on the old key.. Customer Service will have to Explain that?--------------------------------------------------------
