My friend gave me a disk with a trial version for 30 days. I installed it on another PC (older PC) and have to say it is running very smooth, no slowdowns, quick and easy installation. I havent used ZA in years but I have to say I am impressed with how this FW is still working. This was actually my first learning experience with a firewall years ago but when I downloaded it today I had to have a good laugh, brought back memories of sitting at my PC looking like this when I installed ZA.... Who knows after the 30 day trial is over I may have to look into buying this for the family PC, my wife has always liked ZA mostly because its easy to use and understand when she is using the computer with the kids and seemed very happy when I installed it. I dont really see it being mentioned here, mostly Jetico, Look n Stop, Kerio and Comodo. So whats your thoughts on Zone Alarm?
