    Exclamation Full installer for ZA Free + AV

    There's a slight bit of incongruity. When ZoneAlarm 10 Free + Firewall went gold, one of the things that was said in its product introduction page was about providing security. Yet, without a full installer, a user is exposed entirely until the download is completed. So, a full installer is needed. Or, at least, don't download the AV definitions at the time of installation. Once the firewall is up, then download the necessary components for the AV. However, a full installer with the AV definitions included in the package is still the better way to go. Past versions had full installers, even if you had to dig around to find them. All I see for ZA 10 Free + Firewall is a 6 MB downloader. If someone can post me to a full download, then, by all means do. LOL Until then, I am making this feedback post for future versions to have fully capable installers posted in the future.

    This has been posted many times before, please review this board before posting.

    Just make sure your windows firewall is turned ON when dowloading the installer. There will no possible way to get infected if you do so. After the installation, ZA will take care of turning it OFF automatically.

    Thanks,

    I admit I didn't search before I posted. Honestly, I didn't because I rarely find what I'm looking for because I don't search for the exact same text as someone else might have posted before.


    I still say my point, and the point of others who have agreed, is a valid one. Granted, one could turn on Windows Firewall, but, one could still open to online viruses until the software is installed. It's a window of time of only about 15 minutes, but, it could happen. A stand alone installer would allow one to disconnect their modem cable and then run the installer. Then, reconnect the modem, go online, and download AV database updates afterwards.

    Not possible, sorry. There is no way to get infected if the only thing you are performing is downloding and installing ZA from ZA servers and with windows firewall turned ON. The need of the full installer not to get infected while installing is fully flawed.

    Also it has been said before, ZA must be installed with an active internet connection to install properly.

    I am afraid we cannot add more to this thread, closing it to avoid further confusion for other user reading here.

    Thank you,

    Sorry it is not available.

    Please also note that some components may not install correctly and some settings may not confugre correctly if ZA is installed offline.

    Offline installation is therefore not recommended, this is why the full installer is not generally made available.
