    Default ZA Internet Security versus ZA Extreme Security

    Hi
    I'm running ZAIS ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:8.0.298.035.
    Until yesterday
    I had no problems.But when I came back from my holiday, I noticed CheckPoint's information on Gumblar, and its recommendation to install ZA Extreme Security.It seems ZAIS is no longer good enough...I don't mind buying and installing ZA Extreme Security.So I have some questions.
    1. I guess I will have to do a clean install. Right?
    2.
    What happens with one's ZA
    Internet Security
    license key? I've just (May 25th)
    upgraded for one more year. Is that wasted money?
    Thanks for your input and your precious time.
    Ananda

    Operating System:
    Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    8.0
    Product Name:
    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

If you listen to marketing people you will change your security tools every week You may want to contact ZA customer support (link in signature) to see if they have a special price for you considering you have stillalmoast afull year of coverage on ZASS. Meanwhile update to the latest ZASS 8 a lot of fixes and security enhancements.Cheers,Fax

    I'm running ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 8.0.400.020 and ZAFF standalone ver.1.3.153.0 which I prefer
    over Extreme .I prefer using CCleaner over PC Tune-Up and for backups using Acronis 11 to USB drive, but this is me.

    OK,question at hand on Gumblar.You can check if you are infected yourself.

    ZoneAlarm ForceField provides a protective layer around your browser, shielding you from drive-by downloads, browser exploits, phishing attempts, spyware and keyloggers. So your passwords, your confidential information, and your financial data remain protected.

    At this link :

    ZoneAlarm ForceField User Guide at this link:

    See changes in this version :

    http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...ml#1.3.153.000



    FYI

    It's generally cheaper going with Extreme, I would think.I prefer standalone and you can use with other Security Suite
    other than just ZA.

    If it was me, I would take Guru fax following advice :

    Yes, you will waste almost a year of subscription since ZA Extreme is another product with another license.
    Your ZASS is still good enough, don't worry. If you listen to marketing people you will change your security tools every week.

    You may want to contact ZA customer support (link in signature) to see if they have a special price for you considering you have still almoast a full year of coverage on ZASS. Meanwhile update to the latest ZASS 8 a lot of fixes and security enhancements.

    Thank you so much for your extensive reply, Charles.

    I've already installed the latest ZAISS, and FireFox 3.0.10

    Tomorrow I will try to find out that Force Field - though I was a bit surprised after downloading it, it had only a size of 283 KB.

    Kind regards,

    Ananda
