    Angry Re: Latest Free Zonelabs 7 Update for Win2000 Final Release

    I'm still running Win2000 and will probably continue to as long as I can (object to Bill Gates snooping around on my HD or requireing contact w/MS to use an OS). I'm presently building three new desktops (including a media server and backup system) that will -- for now, anyway -- be running Win2000 Pro, SP4.

    Accordingly, I'm looking for a reputable source for a clean download for the complete file -- clean install, last, fully fixed, version of Free ZoneAlarm that will function as well on these three computers -- as my previous antiquated ZA version has for several years now.

    GeorgeV included a download link on a previous post on this subject last year (2008) but that link now leads only to a version history page and only offers a download link for version 8.0 -- that will not work on Win2000 (tried it and couldn't install it).

    Any and help or suggetions would be appreciated.

    Hi GeorgeV,

    Thanks for the response. Yes, I'm already aware of all of that (I've already wasted a lot! of time on these forums and Google in general), but it doesn't alter the fact I need to find the last/best viable download for my three new Win2000 systems (Changing the OS means buying THREE new MS OSs). That's why I was asking if anyone -- you most, likely -- would be aware of a trustworthy, reputable site for such a download (can't find one at ZA).
    I assume that download would be 7.0.843, but possibly some previous version would be superior in this particualar situation -- something completely stable, completely bug-free, even if not completely modern -- that would be expected to work for several more years -- on Win2000 pro, SP4.
    Any suggestions or specfic links would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks again,
    Druw

    Only the Link to the current Version is posted..All download links to the Paid Versions have been removed by ZA Management..Here is a Link to some of the Previous versions of ZAFree.., However, Older versions of the Free Firewall may do not have Updates to the Firewall needed for Current Security Threats..http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...seHistory.htmlGood Luck..

    Thank you very much! That really helps and moves the project along to the -- which last version would be best question? I would assume that 7.0.843 would probably have most modern features (relative to other version 7 builds) and the most debugging, but it also had the MS KB951748 problem -- that, I assume, is patched in the 7.0.843 build available for download. Has a consensus emerged on the forums that any other version might be better overall than 7.0.843? I had found downloads for 7.0.337 and 7.0.344 and was wondering those or anyother previous version might be preferable?
    Thanks again for the help.

    I'm Sorry, I can't help you with old version of ZAFree..the last version of ZAFree that I used was Version 3 or Version 4.0,I prefer the Paid version ZA Pro, ZA Security Suite and ZA Extreme Security..Very little experience with Windows 2000, I used it for only a month or two before Upgrading to Windows XP..---------------------------------------

    There is a website that you might want to check out for previous versions of a lot of products including ZAFF http://www.oldversion.com/
    However the latest version
    of ZAFF http://www.oldversion.com/ZoneAlarm.html
    they appear at present
    is 6.5.737. It is possible you may see the 7.0 versions soon as they were most recently discontinued.
    Hope this helps

    Does anyone know where the promised* SIGNATURE UPDATES are for 7.x ZoneAlarm Free? This has not been addressed anywhere in this thread, and I've tried to find them on the ZA website several times.

    Like druw, I am also still on Win2K (in my case, thanks to the continuing Bush-Cheney economy impoverishing me). I can't afford to upgrade my hardware and software to WinXP or higher (nor would I want to use the Vista pig, even if I could afford to).
