    Always better to remove the beta before installing the official version. :)

    Yes
    Scheduled AV autoupdates (manual updates unlimited). I don't know if anything else have been stripped... seems not.

    Thanks for sharing:) Cnet says that advanced scanning options are not enabled by default. I think detection of PUPS may not be enabled. I will have to see it myself.

    does auto learn mode just add the safe programs to the firewall and unknown it prompts?

    Cool. A final release. I like. Especially since it's powered by Kaspersky. A very strong competition.

    No, all is added except known unsafe. You need to select the other mode to have known safe to be allowed and unknown to be prompted.

    Would like to add on to RejZor comment. Installed with no problem. Updated virus and spyware def's., and everything is running flawless:) Very nice GUI and as RejZor stated powered by Kasperksy which makes it a very completitive software..:thumb:

    @ Fax:

    Is there an off-line standalone installer that could be downloaded for this product? If so, any links?


    Thanks.

    so if i Set it to firewall to Max and the defenseNet Setting to Auto that should only allow known and ask for unknown?

    i think im correct.

    i see that the AV doesnt scan mail, and is set to on access scanning only. so Scanning when reading and their smart scanning is disabled

    those are paid only. so far that all i see that is restricted. still not bad.

    im really liking the suite.

    ive set mine both to max and manual. still havnt gotten a popup.

    Zyrtec I went to ZoneAlarm web site, downloaded their installer approx 5mb.
    than installed the software approx 81 mb.

    Just a note to add, in the updates, I manually updated 5 tiimes so far. ZA states will auto update every 24 hrs.

    Thanks, asr but I already know about that 5MB stub that can be downloaded and, works as a download manager, downloading the full standalone installer.

    Although, ZoneAlarm used to provide a direct link with the full standalone installer for those [like me] who don't like to download the 5MB stub.
    I'm hoping they didn't change their policy regarding this full-installer, though.

    Just curious, but those of you using win7 64, do you notice a Audit Failure under the event viewer/security which states this:

    Code Integrity determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error.

    File Name: \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Program Files\CheckPoint\ZAForceField\Plugins\ISWSHEX.dll


    thanks
