    Default zone alarm free and windows 7 problem

    hi all. i recently tried zone alarm free version 044. i found that although everything appeared to work ok as far as the internet was concerned, as well as using the computer in general off the internet, my machine took a long time to close down whilst booted into windows 7. i had to re-image my computer to get it back to how it was when using windows firewall only. uninstalling zonealarm did not correct the problem, so was glad i had created an image before the install.
    my questions now are:

    a) does the latest release, 057, correct this problem?
    b) is this version ok to use on windows XP as well?
    c)has any other problem been noticed with the new release?

    hope someone can advise me, please

    hi. tnx for reply. did read about the changes made to 057. wondered if anyone was aware if the slow shut down in windows 7 had happened to someone else. i hadn't installed anything else at the time, so can only assume zonealarm free was the culprit and all ok after imaged machine back.
    any other user tried and had any similar probs as i did with 044? if so, fixed now in 057?

    tnx for reopening the thread. perhaps if others have/will have a similar problem they can report here. if it is my machine only, then what could be the cause? apart from the security within windows 7, only extra security is my a/v, which has not been a problem up til now and was turned off at time of zone alarm install.
