... what made ZoneAlarm popular --
a good and simple to use software firewall. And that
only want/need a software firewall.
Unless Zone Labs releases another software firewall like ZA Plus (preferably) or even like the original ZA Pro without all the non-firewall features/bloat, I'm staying with ZA Pro 5.5.094.000 until it's no longer safe to use, then will start looking for another software firewall.
For me ZA Pro 6.x version is bloated with too many non-firewall features that's a duplication of features already provided the Antivirus, Anti-Spyware/Malware and Anti-Trojan security apps I prefer to use.
Been using ZA since 2.0;
ZA Pro 5.5.094.000 with all the non-esential firewall features disabled behind a NAT/SPI router.
