    I have been looking at e Trusts firewall , and downloaded it , and noticed its almost the image iof zonealarm , but really so much easier to set up and use . It has the EZ Firewall version 3.7.179 and True Vector security engine version 3.7.179 and the same Driver version. I think they said that CA are a part of zonelabs or have interests as such . If this be so , I wionder why many dont opt for EZ Firewall instead ?
    Its $39 the first year and $19 there after .
    Has any one had any experience with this. Thanks

    Well, CA is not part of Zonelabs :) they are one of the largest 'independent' software developers.

    On their website you can read the about the relationship:

    CA is not very well known in the consumer market, their focus so far has been the corporate business, although the AV-solution is quite popular (and of a very decent quality).

    So, it is ZoneAlarm and it seems more user friendly. By all means try it;)

    You're welcome, always glad to help ;)
     
  5. Does it have any privacy controls like ZAPRO? Or is it more like the free ZAF?
