    Exclamation can I Install Zone Alarm off-line?> You must be connected to the Internet

    Hi

    I am about to format a pc and decided to download the zone alarm set up file so that I will install it after finishing installing windows and before connecting the pc to the internet. However, I am noticing that the setup file I downloaded is only about 4.37MB. Is this the full installation file or does it require to connect to the net to install because older installation files had a larger file size?

    The reason I am asking this is that I do not wish to connect to the net before having both a firewall and an antivirus installed.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Hi;

    You must be connected to the Internet while installing Zone Alarm.

    The product will not license properly.
    Other features cannot be enabled.
    Security toolbar will not work.

    Its best to install with an internet connection to help cut down on any bugs or problems you might introduce installing without an internet connection.

    *ZA Extreme (365MB): http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...01_079_000.exe
    Btw, I am not sure I follow your statement about hidden installers.
    Latest full installers for retails version are always published here (main visible link at support site):
    Looking for the latest version?

    Instead of posting direct links (that will be outdated with a new release), please always refer to the above page to find the latest retail installers.

    Thanks,
