    Default ZoneAlarm Version 8 - GUI Interface

    Does anyone like the new interface?
    Personally, I think the new one
    complicates things and just looks terrible.
    I want the old interface back with the colorful tabs.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    I'm using Vista. The new interface does not properly support the Vista "look" it just uses Win95/98 style header bar. Major oversight, especially since ZA 7 looked fine in Vista.

    Yeah, I agree.
    The interface from version 7 looked wonderfully simple.
    It looked good too.
    This new design has a basic look that just doesn't work as well as the older tabs do.

    It seems to me that there wasn't sufficient testing of the new version, or there was a massive brain fart at Zone Labs. There are a lot of complaints about various problems. I know that I was having a major problem with Firefox not loading images in web pages, or not loading the whole page. I had developed a rather high opinion of ZA but it's getting a little shaky now. Never have I seen such a flub.

    Fax, I know you're supposed to support all of ZoneAlarm's decisions, but do you really think there is an advantage to the new interface over the older one?

    Hi!this is not the place to discuss the beauty of an interface or not.This is a user support forum on issues with ZA software.The interface? Is different from previous version. Its reallyverysubjective Cheers,Fax

    An ugly interface replacing a good interface is a ZA issue. The forums should be used for user opinions as well as for issues. With threads like these, perhaps ZoneAlarm will listen and care about what their customers think of the updates they've implemented.

    It installed fine. I'm just having the same difficulties as other seem to be expressing, and the Win95 style header.
    New info: If I shut down the program and restart it, it comes back with the proper Vista style.

    I don't care too much about the window border, I usually don't have the window up anyway, but I don't want to be restarting my virus protection.

    Honestly, I like the new look. I think it simplifies things, and is a lot cleaner.

    I haven't however been able to find the spot that shows the "xxxx program is accessing the Internet" message. I guess they removed it? I was a really useful little feature that I would actually like to see improved--instead of removed (if indeed it has). I haven't read the whole help file, but I'm not even sure what that feature was called.

    I would LOVE to be able to see exactly what all is actively accessing the Internet and where it's heading. The little green dot next to programs is nice, but not what I am referring to.
