    Default Full Firewall

    How can I get a straight full, un-crippled firewall version of ZoneAlarm without all the other stuff built into it?

    And before someone says I need the other stuff, I already have what I want and need for other stuff. I just want and need a firewall that isn't crippled.

    Not sure what you mean by crippled, maybe your looking for ZAPro?

    Look here http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en...e-software.htm

    What I mean by crippled is that the ZA I had years ago and the one I currently have (Zonealarm Free) have never logged ANY blockings from the outside in. All log entries are internal operations only. Incoming always lists "0" (zero).

    I want to have a good firewall, and I'm willing to pay for it, but not if it won't do inbound fire walling.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions. I'm getting all kinds of flak off the internet, and I can't find any place in ZA Free to enter URLs to block. Does the free version NOT check incoming traffic? Does ZA no longer accept input.

    OK, if it makes any difference, I'm running Windows 7 on a T520 Lenovo.

    This is rather normal. The majority of internet connections nowadays are served via modem doing NAT or routers with integrated firewalls. Therefore, the incoming will be filtered by those devices first. ZA will take care of whatever jumps those first lines and monitor the outgoing connections.

    No, not normal. _As I said_ I AM GETTING junk off the internet. It is in a new type of pop-up that old software doesn't catch. Therefore I need to tell it exactly what to block.

    So to put it in your words, ZA is not 'taking care of whatever jumps those first lines...'

    Your problem should be managed by an anti-malware/riskware/adware type of software not a firewall. You need to stop third party components installing on the system rather then stopping them after they are installed. Thats too late.

    So, first is to clean your system from anything that generate those pop-ups, second to update the system and all the third party components. Thirdly to find an alternative antivirus as the one you have installed seems not doing the work.

    But most importantly you need to educate yourself about what to install and what to avoid. This is a matter of practising, reading carefully whatever pop-up your security software is giving you, installing only software from reputable sources.... and so on. No security software can protect from users misconducts or lack of knowledge.

    For cleaning up your system see here:
    Malware Clean-up Guidance
    Some of the steps above described are only applicable if you are running retail versions of ZA.
    The best would be to post your logs at bleepingcomputer or spywarehammer. They will take you hand in hand to ispect and clean your system.

    To ensure everything is up to date see here:
    xyz was not detected. What I should do?

    Finally, for suggestions on how to setup securily youy system you may want to post at bleepingcomputer forum. There are general sections of users asking for suggestions as this is a ZA only user-to-user support. Unless you want to move from a simple ZA firewall to the free suite of ZA with the AV (but you need to remove any other AV you have installed). You may also need to evaluate if to move to retail version of software rather than free ones.

    ZoneAlarm is a Two-way firewall makes you invisible to hackers and blocks programs from transmitting to them.Both Inbound & Outbound traffic.

    ZoneAlarm not design to enter URLs to block.Need programs like OpenDNS to filter websites or using the Windows Hosts File for that.

    Also, What's new in the latest ZoneAlarm Free Firewall?

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country,
    without All the Details, without the ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..

    If you would Describe your Computer Setup/Windows OS Version What other Security Software you have installed?

    1.) If you have several other Security Software that you Trust, Why not use the Firewall provided Free by Windows? or Firewall made by one of those Other Security Software programs that you like..

    2.) NOTICE:
    Please note that ZASS and ZAXS do not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled).

    To troubleshoot ZASS/ZAXS issues removethe other Security programsand install them back once you see that ZA works as it should. For example,Norton/Symantec, McAfee,AVG, Spyspweeper, Spyware Doctor, trojan hunter, adware, SpyBotS&D, PC tools Threat Fire, any otherAnti-virus, Anti-spyware, Registry Guard or locking tools, etc...
