    Default Difference between Free V8 and V7?

    I presently have Free V7 on my Windows XP machine.
    Other than the hiccup several months ago with the MS update, it has been working fine.
    I am afraid to
    updated to V8, because of some of the issues I have been reading
    here on the forum.
    My question is:
    Is
    V8 that much more
    better (in terms of security) than V7, or does V8 just provide more features, but still provides the same level of security?
    In which case, I'll likely keep V7 on my machine.
    Thanks

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>IMHO, there are very few if any Feature Changes between Versions of the FREE ZA version..AFAIK, the only real change between ZAFree 7.0.483 and ZAFree 8.0.065 is the New GUI look and feel, the Basic Firewall features are basicly the same..Post Script: One major change in Version 8.0 (Support for Win2000 and WinXP SP2 Only ) has ended, the WinXP version now requires SP3..===========================However, There are significant feature changes and improvements in the NEW version 8.0 PAID versions..ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:8.0.059.000
