    Default Zone Alarm UPDATE

    I have been using Zone Alarm Pro v8.0.298.00 and I am very happy with it. I was offered an update (not to be confused with an UPGRADE), exact ver. I don't remember. I would assume it is a step above what I am now using. I did the the update and found it disappointing to say the least. I went back to my old v8.0.

    A. I could not longer find anti-spyware scan function. Appears you now must pay for it in an upgrade.

    B. I could no longer find the Custom Cookie Control, Block 3rd party cookies, Disable web bugs, Remove Private header information, Block session cookies, etc., etc.

    C. Could not longer find the Show Privacy Advisor. This is a CRUCIAL function when trouble shooting sites that won't load properly and also gives one a good idea of what the site is trying to foist on you. Gives you nice visual feedback as to what is happening.

    Either I am missing something or these functions were removed in the update. I am not at at all happy if they have been removed. If they are still there in the UPDATE, someone please educate me as to where to find them.

    I'm Sorry, But thos Features have Been Removed in ZAPro 9.x

    Note: To serve our customers who have a need for a streamlined high-end firewall product, especially to complement an existing anti-virus program, ZoneAlarm Pro firewall no longer includes the anti-spyware feature. To further 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 also been removed with this release.
