    Default Which older ZA version would you recommend?

    I am frustrated with ZA 7 Suite. I'd like to use an older, stable version that is not bloated and that actually works.

    I have purchased a valid license for ZA 7 Suite, hopefully ZA will let me use it for an older version or let me convert it/trade it in for an older version.

    Here are my requirements:

    - ZA Pro for advanced application control and expert rules

    - I do not need or want any HIPS, and I mean I don't want to disable these features, I don't want them to be there in the code at all, if possible

    - I don't want anything extra like antispyware, antivirus, privacy, etc. if possible to not even be there rather than disabling the feature

    - Integration with the XP Security Center would be nice, though not a must have

    - All I really need is a stable, good firewall with outgoing application control, not extra bloat

    Based on this, could you please recommend any specific builds from the older 4.x, 5.x, 6.x versions that work well with XP SP2 and don't have any significant bugs?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi!The behaviour you are experiencing with 7 is not normal, I have already suggested to clean install...Usually version 7 is VERY silent.If you are not concerned on vulnerabilities on older ZA version (see here, for example) , I would go with 6.1.In version 6.5 expert rules are brokenIn version 5 your key may be not valid.Hope this helps,Fax

    In what sense are the expert rules broken in 6.5?

    Is version 5 less bloated and more stable?

    Hi!You wrote: In what sense are the expert rules broken in 6.5?In the sense that they do not work.They disappear after ZA restart...Is version 5 less bloated and more stable? I can't help on this, running latest version 7 and it has been very stable, as well as 6.5 or 5.5.The best is to try it and see with which one is best for you.Fax

    Wow, and ZA hasn't fixed this? That says something about the quality of their products.

    There are bugs and then there are bugs. This seems like a major one. Poor users who don't want to upgrade from 6.5 ... It seems to me that ZA should have released at least another build to address this major issue. This worries me about running ZA products, I can be left in the dark with a busted version.
