    Thumbs up Status of ZASS for New Laptop with Vista > remove trial of NIS

    I have two general questions re the status of ZASS for Vista:
    1.
    Is ZASS for Vista fully-funcitional yet

    (i.e., does it have all the functionality of ZASS for WinXP)?
    2.
    Does ZASS for Vista use the same AV engine (i.e., Kaspersky) as ZASS for XP?
    Thanks

    Thanks...

    Going by the daggers and their footnote it seems that ZASS for Vista is still lacking some important features!

    Hi!
    it depends how you look at it.

    Many are happy about the VISTA versions since they are not bloated like the XP versions. ZASS for vista contains just what you need: A full firewall, antivirus and antispyware detection + antispam. Privacy control can be done with FireFox and several free add-on available. IMsecurity is outdated as technology. There are native IM supporting encryption (skype)

    Of course, I understand you instead like all the add-ons.
    Then you will need to wait (don't know when) since the design of the VISTA firewall and all the features had to be implemented from scratch. Even if the GUI look the same

    VISTA is a difficult beast...

    Cheers,

    Well, the link you provided in your first reply indicates that the Vista version doesn't have E-mail protection or Spyware protection which doesn't seem good to me!

    Since no details are given it's difficult to determine the extent of missing functionality.

    Hi!ZASS (suite)has two spyware engines, one by kaspersky and one developed internally by ZA. Probably you mean 'spysite blocking'? This is something else on top of the antispywareE-mail will be checked 'on acces', so you will be still perfectly protected. By the way, scanning e-mail is not funtional even in the XP version (this is due to a buggy Kaspersky driver). Cheers,Fax

    Thanks for the re-assurance fax.

    While I do use ZASS on my XP desktop,
    I was wondering if I should
    put
    ZASS on my new Vista laptop (which came with a 3 mo. trial of NIS), but now I won't hesitate installing it.
