Firstly, sorry if I am asking a repeat question. I've had a good look around and see no definitive answer to my questions.
I have been running ZAfree firewall 8.0.298 on Vista Home Basic 32bit SP2 for a while now. I updated to 9 recently but there were some aspects I preferred from 8.0.298 and so I rolled back a version.
When doing so I noticed the many many posts and articles on the net claiming that ZA8 is not "compatible" with vista 32bit.
1) Is ZAfree 8.0.298 now compatible with Vista Home Basic 32bit SP2?
2) Are the compatibility issues that some have described, purely related to crashes and errors (My PC runs fine and I seldom get internet dropping out) or security risks?...
3) ... and so does running ZAfree 8.0.298 this leave my computer vulnerable to attacks?
Thank you for your help and patience
