    By the way, although the system requirements only mention FireFox 2 the latest build supports FireFox 3. IE6 & IE7 are also supported, but that's it.

    I will have to try it on my Vista laptop and see if it doesn't crash. It was extremely buggy on my XP machine a few months ago. They had a nice offer last November when they gave away a free copy of ZA antispyware. I have since moved on to the next best thing. :D

    Seems to work better with my Vista machine than XP. My XP desktop was running like Windows 95 when I had it installed. I had to wait like 2 minutes for my browser to pop-up and my yahoo messenger crashed. I wonder if they are having a hard time selling this product. ;)

    I live in Norway and had no problem signing up for the offer, so it's not US only.

    ("Note: this download link is active for 7 days, expiring 6am (PST) on 8/20/08") the download link will expire at that time but you can install at any time once you have it downloaded.

    I misunderstood the license information in the email - sorry. It does appear that the license is ticking regardless of when we install the application though.

    I read an article by Roger A. Grimes, InfoWorld (May 21) that ZoneAlarm ForceField v.1.0.331.0 was compromised in sixty seconds. He surfed links from Shadowserver.org and www.dshield.org with the string "killwow1.cn/g.js" in the source code. He didn't mentioned Sandboxie or Defensewall in the article. You can do a Google search for it. He sure wasn't a fan of sandboxing at all.

    No. I don't even see the point of buying this thing, which is compatible only with some browsers, while you can use Sandboxie which is free and compatible with any software.
