    Default Continuing to use Zone Alarm 5

    Zone Alarm 6 is incompatible with the Laplink, the remote control software I use. While I can upgrade to ZA 6, I am currentlly using ZoneAlarm 5.05.094.

    Can anyone comment on:
    1) What precisely I'm giving up in security by not using version 6 of ZoneAlarm.
    2) What the last make of version 5 of ZoneAlarm is, and where/whether it's availble on the web.


    Operating System:Windows 2000 Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:5.x

    If you want previous versions of ZAp you can find them here. . The Zone Alarm version 6.0 added these features:
    [*]Wireless Security Protection [*]Anti-Spyware (detection and prevention) [*]Triple Defense Firewall (Network firewall, operating system firewall, program firewall) [*]Automatic kill control (disables malicious programs)

    The basic firewall including Program Control, Mail Safe, and ID Lock features did not change. While I do believe the added features are good, I also like the last version 5.5 and still use it on one of my computers. Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Bill.

    My employer makes webroot spybot available to me, and I've put all my computers behind routers, although I do need to open several ports for Laplink, so it sounds like continuing to use version 5.5 is reasonable.
