    Default Questions on ZA Extreme Security

    I am using ZA Internet Security and I am curious about what people think about the Extreme suite. I have been googling the subject but did not find very much.

    Since my pc is used for gaming, I do not want a security program that slows it down.

    What good and bad is there to say about this thing?

    Here is a Comparison of New Feature for Both..
    ==============================================
    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite version 9.0.083.000
    • New Browser Security:
      • Advanced Download Protection:
        • Detects the latest zero-day threats in downloads that you initiate—before they reach your computer
        • Includes heuristic analysis and program check
        • Can run and analyze download behavior in a virtual environment if necessary
      • Spy site detection
      • Signature and heuristic phishing detection
      • Website safety check and rating

    • New unified anti-virus and anti-spyware engine:
      • Scans 80%-90% faster and combines anti-virus and anti-spyware into one scan
      • More advanced scan options– riskware, ADS, heuristic scanning, and more exception options
      • Additional on-access scan controls
      • On-access scanning now detects spyware

    • Program control features to stop advanced security bypass attacks:
      • Timing attack protection
      • Service control manager protection (not supported on 64-bit and Windows 7)

    • Other enhancements:
      • Many performance improvements
      • Reduced number of unnecessary alerts
      • Windows 7 32-bit ready (Free compatibility update to run on Windows 7 when it is released)

      Note: To streamline in an age where web privacy controls are built into the most popular browsers and email attachment scanning is included in the major email applications, privacy controls and inbound MailSafe have been removed with this release.
    ================================================
    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version 9.0.083.000
    • Hard Drive Encryption for Laptops (optional add-on):
      • In order to stop laptop thieves from stealing your data and identity, encrypts all your data so only you can see it.

    • More Browser Security features added:
      • Advanced Download Protection:
        • Detects the latest zero-day threats in downloads that you initiate—before they reach your computer
        • Includes heuristic analysis and program check
        • Can run and analyze download behavior in a virtual environment if necessary
      • Additional layer of keylogger protection--encryption ensures only the intended application can read your keystrokes

    • New unified anti-virus and anti-spyware engine:
      • Scans 80%-90% faster and combines anti-virus and anti-spyware into one scan
      • More advanced scan options– riskware, ADS, heuristic scanning, and more exception options
      • Additional on-access scan controls
      • On-access scanning now detects spyware

    • Program control features to stop advanced security bypass attacks:
      • Timing attack protection
      • Service control manager protection (not supported on 64-bit and Windows 7)

    • Other enhancements:
      • Many performance improvements
      • Reduced number of unnecessary alerts
      • Windows 7 32-bit ready (Free compatibility update to run on Windows 7 when it is released)

      Note: We have removed inbound MailSafe attachment inspection with this release, as this type of protection is now in all major email applications. (Spam filtering and outbound MailSafe are still included.)

    Thanks! I read that before I did make my post. I was thinking of more of personal opinions based on personal experiences.

    Ok..

    As you can See by my Signature that I use ZA Extreme on two of my Vista Computers..

    I also use ZA Security Suite on my WinXP SP3 Computer..

    From My Experience I like Both, while the Extreme Adds Extra Feature..
    I find that I oftern Turn OFF several of the Extra Features in the Extreme
    for different reasons..
    the Virtual Browsing protection you get with ForceField is Good, but if your not real comfortable with how computers work, Forcefield can be a source of Complaints..

    Oh, THAT sounds interesting! :-)
    Why do you turn them of and what do you turn off? I mean, if I turn of all the features that make the suite extreme, maybe I should go along with ZASS?

    You are Correct.. If you are Happy with ZASS stay with it it is a Good Product.

    That is why there are Four different Flavors of ZoneAlarm.. Choose the one with the Features you want to use..

    Here is a Comparison chart..
