... I'm beginning to think otherwise.
Having read favorable reviews on ZA Internet Security Suite, I loaded
v6.5 just over a week ago onto my PC previously running XP Pro SP2 and Symantec (Norton) AV. Not had any problems in 3 years but was getting sensitive to increased dodgy net activity and wanted some added protection. I wish I hadn't ...........
Having spent hours trying to figure out why certain pages on eBay simply wouldn't load with cookie control or ad blocking enabled (tried everything suggested in this user forum that I could find, including deleting databases, resetting etc.), I received a response from ZA tech. support telling me that having tried all the things I had,
"some pages simply won't load and you need to turn cookie control and ad blocking off whilst viewing them". Great.
A week or so later, and my PC is significantly slower with ZA installed than it was previously, Outlook Express takes forever to send emails, I get hangs & crashes which were unheard of on my box in the 3 years prior to ZA, multiple generic win32 errors, my taskbar turns itself from blue XP to grey windows classic on a whim, but worst of all, Windows automatic updates no longer works. I get the icon telling me updates are available, click to install, I click and the icon disappears but no updates installing. I could go on as there are other examples, but you get the point. What a nightmare.
Thought I'd ask here if anyone else experienced such a plethora of issues, and whether they were easily fixed, before I uninstall the lot, go back to Symantec and ask Zone Labs for a refund !
