    Default ZoneAlarm 7.0.337 - What is Checkpoint doing??

    My two cents ....
    I have been using ZoneAlarm Pro for years.
    It has always
    done what it advertises - protect my pc from viruses/trojans
    and malware. I have never had any issues with any version
    of ZoneAlarm, less the occasional VSMON running amock.
    I used to use Norton.
    Norton also performed as advertised.
    However, Norton over time became such a large and cumbersome package
    which ate up so much of my system resources that I jumped ship.
    I downloaded and installed ZoneAlarm 7 the other day.
    The first
    thing that I noticed is the the physical install file is about
    30% larger than the lastest 6.5 version.
    After the clean install
    and reboot I noticed that there were two new processes running
    on the system.
    These processes are "ScanningProcess.exe" and
    used about 20 meg of physical ram each.
    So at boot, ZoneAlarm
    is now the single largest user of system resources.
    Does ZoneAlarm 7 protect my pc better than version 6? Probably
    not - so why reinvent the wheel.
    I am not quite ready to call
    the ZoneAlarm 7 "bloatware". If too many more "improvements"
    are made it may well earn that distinction.

    That's odd, the two scanningprocess.exe are usually involved with the new Kaspersky av; so the first question is are you sure you
    got the ZA Pro upgrade?- it doesn't have the Kaspersky av in it. Check the stats on ZA - right click your ZA icon >click on "about" > copy and paste info. You didn't try the trial version ZA Suite? .:0Naive Melody NYC 5-7-07 - Hung up - Madonna

    The question now stands as to what you really want - "my personal suggestion" would be to keep the suite, as the new Kaspersky av in this ZA Suite is a top performer (although there are a few side effects for some - and this being the first version releases - further upgrade/versions will fix the bugs - and things will improve in time). Hopefully, now that you do have Kaspersky av, "you did un-install whatever anti-virus you were running? Please do so - immediately if not." And for Norton, I hope you had used the Norton Removal Tool - see - http://forums.zonealarm.com/zonelabs...message.id=154
