    Default What is Automated Windows XP Service Pack 2 upgrade option in ver 8 ?

    The newest version of ZoneAlarm requires at least Service Pack 2 in order to install. That was added to automatically link customers to the Service Pack 2 download if they needed it to install the new version.

    I have a question I want to renew my zone alarm internet security. I am using an old version 7.0.483.000 on desktop windows xp serv pack 2. I was told your current version would only work with serv pack 3. I dont want to install serv pack 3. So what version
    would I be able to use? Can I buy and old internet security and if I got a license would it work on a later version?

    Can I use one computer with the older version and another with a newer version?

    I have windows xp serv pack 2 but also have vista home premium on a laptop with serv pack 1.

    So I need some help. Also is there any place with instructions for the internet security program in pdf format or something like that.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your answer. One question if I continue to use the 7.0.483 with windows xp serv pack 2 will you continue to have updates on those or will there be a problem?

    I am going to buy a new version of zone alarm that is a multi computer use.

    I might consider going to sp3 but I am nervous about that and don't want to have problems.

    Can you tell me what conflicts I might have if I were to use the 8 version with xp serv pack 2?

    Thanks

    Yes,7.0.483 will continue to have updates of anti-virus and anti-spyware definitions, but why use outdated software and unsecured OS .When using ZA version 8 and Windows XP Service Pack 2, you will be nag with installing Windows hotfixes with Windows XP Service Pack 2 .

    Thanks for your answers here. I think I am going to back some things up and then install sp3. Now I have a license for 2007 version. So can I use that license and get the 2009 version? Or do I have to buy the 2009 version?

    Thanks again and sorry to bother you.

    <hr></blockquote>1.) has your License for 2007 version Expired yet?
    2.)
    If your current License Key is for ZoneAlarm version 7.0 and not Expired, I think it will work on the the same Type of ZA version 8.0
    you can find out what version you have by
    Right clicking on the ZA Tray Icon and click the About option..

    I have 3 months until it expires. It is for 2007 suite. I was about to buy a new version and not wait for the expiration.

    Is it best to uninstall zone alarm and then use the disk for the 2009 new program?

    Thanks
