    Exclamation ZoneAlarm Pop-ups

    Hello, forum.

    I've been a happy user of ZoneAlarm Free for many years, and recommended it to many people. Probably this makes me a terrible skinflint and someone who shouldn't expect too much for the pound they're not spending, but I'm curious as to why ZA has suddenly started subjecting me to pop-up ads (I should clarify, these are ads for ZoneAlarm, notification of ZA surveys and so on, not third-party companies and products).

    It's not that I mind advertising, particularly, as long as it's not too intrusive; I figure I'm getting something for nothing so the least I can do is put up with the occasional banner or whatever.

    My problem is in the fact that, as I would have thought a security company would realise, pop-ups are the enemy. Pop-ups are a threat. They're often used as a happy, trojan-horsey way in to someone's computer and I don't understand why ZoneAlarm wants to put users - even tight-fisted Free users - in the position of having to click on an unsolicited pop-up, even to dismiss it?
