    Default ZASS 7.1.248.000 and Vista.. Hows it working for you??

    Hi all,
    How do you like ZASS / Vista??? Is the missing components
    ( ZASS-
    XP verses Vista version)not needed as is
    said?? What's your thoughts on this subject?
    I know I posted "sort" of the same question before, But was hoping for a few more repliesnow that 7.1.248 is a
    ZA release for Vista...
    My XP version has ran great, But I only have5 days remaining on my subscription and a new computer on mind that will be
    on Vista..I guess other ZA products will cover what's missing in the
    Vista version, But do I needto buy two product to cover Vista at the same level as an XP version ZASS??
    Thanks for any and all replies

    Hi!
    ZASS for VISTA is as stable as the latest XP version (at least here)
    Moreover you don't have heavier piece of code like program control and IMSecurity or the parental control (never used in my ZA life).

    And apart from VISTA bugs (not related to ZA), I have mine (a DELL) working fine.
    The latest ZA forcefield 217.6 seems also OK (considering is a beta) much better than previous version 217.0

    Thanks again fax.. I was going to just go ahead with ZASS/vista and use FF beta
    also,But once the beta is over, guess it's another cost for FF... Not sure I like that, only becauseI feel a suite should cover that, at least somewhat.. Maybe I'm missing something but Ithought there were some differences from
    the XP version
    in the virus/spyware also??
    Thanks again

    Thanks George..
    I can restore my settings (somewhat if need be, but don't need too) ..
    I was meaning once I ordered the new
    Dell, instead ordering &quot;without&quot; any securitysoftware.. I would let them install one of
    their &quot;venders&quot; security programs one ofwhich I had for years before ZASS, as i have seen and heard that they have changedsomewhat in the 2007/8 versions????
    Thanks again

    Hi!
    indeed when the beta will be finished most probably a new VISTA version will be available...

    Well I went ahead and renewed my ZA
    Subscription to the 3-user.. No problemswith new key install on the XP.. 369 days remain on Sub.....
    I still have not ordered the new computer, But my thoughts now are, I'll go ahead andlet Dell install the dreaded
    &quot; Other -N- Guys -I- Security -S-
    Software -2008-.
    Since theresno cost difference if I get or
    I don't get any..
    And see how it goes and still have my 3-userto compare it to......
    Any Thoughts??
    Thanks again for your replies
    Ron
