    Default UPDATE Fails

    I runs Free ZoneAlarm under Windows 2000.

    Lately, every time I reboot ZoneAlarm tells me that there's a new update available.

    However, when I try to DO the update, I'm told that that update is not compatible with Windows 2000.

    Can't the update process be modified to check the OS, and not bother offering an update, if that update is not compatible with the OS???

    Default Re: Windows 2000 support ends with intro of version 8.0 products

    Quoting from

    Windows 2000 Support Discontinued

    In 2005, Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 2000. In 2010, Microsoft will end extended support for Windows 2000, which will make this operating system less secure and increasingly prone to hacking exploits. (

    As a result, Check Point will cease to support Windows 2000 with the introduction of our version 8.0 ZoneAlarm family of products including ZoneAlarm
    Internet Security Suite 2009, ZoneAlarm
    Pro, ZoneAlarm
    Antivirus, ZoneAlarm
    Anti-Spyware, and ZoneAlarm

    Note about pre-8.0 products:

    * Pre-8.0 products will continue to run on the Windows 2000 operating system and receive signature updates such as virus and spyware signatures. However, there will be new and advanced protection features in post-8.0 ZoneAlarm products that will not be added to pre-8.0 products. ZoneAlarm strongly recommends upgrading to a supported and current version of the Windows operating system.
