I noticed recently that every time I boot into Windows, ZoneAlarm Free Firewall now serves up popup ads.

It tells me that I can get rid of them by paying what is essentially a yearly rental fee for ZoneAlarm Pro.

I do understand your desire to monetize your product, but there are two things I try not to do: see popup ads when I boot into Windows, and pay yearly fees for using software.

So, although I've been using ZoneAlarm since the Win2K days, when it was produced by Zone Labs, and think it's a solid product, it's time for this relationship to end.

Goodbye, and thanks for all the fish.
