Hi, folks: Just notice that the new release. Is it still a beta or final? anyone ?
Beta - for sure.
Beta stage is over..this is the final release...ZA is going to update their website on monday..
I think it is final, since the file is already on the official server, but release history not yet released, maybe Monday. The download path indicated that it is the final version.
Here is a quote from Z.A's beta forum:
""We are officially done with BETA 7. It will be released on our website late Monday. Even though it can be found on MajorGeeks.com, PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD, as it is NOT OFFICIAL. The version could change at any time because of major bugs.""
I haven't run any ZA product for some time, so I decided to try out the new ZA with AntiVirus version 7. Being that it's utilizing Kaspersky's engine along with the triple firewall only, it seemed to be a good choice for me. Installation went very well, and the program seems to be performing smoothly on my machine. I did the usual eicar test, and it was picked up upon scanning, not on access. So far, I'd say it certainly rates better than any of the 6.5xx releases.
Has anyone tried the new ZA Pro? I'm scared to try
So they are using kaspersky's engine for the Av ?- What do they use for the antispyware ?
I am not sure what a triple firewall is.Could you please elaborate ?
It is marketing from Zone Labs
-Network firewall = packet filter.
-Application firewall = outbond control.
-OS firewall = tampering/leak control.
so they are not using somebody else's firewall ? I ownder if it's any good
anyone know if this latest v7 works on Vista?
No it doesn't work with Vista
It´s technology from CheckPoint (Zone Labs´ parent company)
Don´t worry, "triple firewall" is their marketing buzzword. Almost all today´s firewalls have the same functions.
DWAX - Just remember what I am saying. Wait 3 or 4 weeks AFTER the release, and keep checking their forum, under "install/upgrade" section. If you don't see hundreds of posts wailing and gnashing their teeth because of disastrous problems, install it.
I don´t know why they didn´t change the new shitty skin, I would like to use my old skin. Other than this it´s mostly the same, and I wonder if they fixed certain holes reported by Matousec, isn´t there a changelog?
You can change the skins,go to Preferences, Options and select a new skin.
I just checked their site but I found nothing re: what antivirus+ antispyware they use.
Any useful link ?
They are migrated from CA VET engine to KAV engine.
Hi, folks: I concur your statement, which is, IMO, an analogy to US/CANADA auto owners' attitude towards GM,FORD and CHRYSLER(all in US/CANADA). That is NEVER buy the first year's production of any new model made by these three. Recalls, disbutes and class action suit(years later as result of first year production) are common. These American giant companies are often run by marketing -oriented high IQ,low ITQ people, they manage their jobs by achievements, namely shoot first,as many as possible, and then aim. Having said that, these companies still need some volunteers to test the water. It all depends on that whether you will be one of those commandoes. Just for your tea time materials or bed time story.
ZL has a history of not getting it close to right for about 4 revs after the initial release of a new platform. Save yourself some sanity and wait.
Granted, I think they've gotten much better since they opened the betas up publicly.
well za pro is working fine on my pc....but za security suite caused very slow start-ups mainly due to kaspersky's av....
At start-up a process"scanningprocess.exe" is running two instances and taking 32k memory!!!
ZAAV already disabled on-sccess scanning still 2 "scanningprocess.exe" running, and no connection at all sometimes, like my system is sending request but can't go outside, plus system slower.
those two instances of "scanningprocess.exe" will not go until you remove za with antivirus..if you want the firewall only than go for za-pro..
I have un-installed both za-pro and zass cause they are making the start-ups very-very slow...
worse than F-secure IS ?
