    Do you have a link?

    Emsisoft, Appguard, OSArmor works fine with ZAP. ("Pro" just the firewall)
    (Win7x64)

    According to their website, ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall is only compatible with Windows Defender, so keep that in mind.

    Just lazy commercial staff that copied the same requirements for all ZA versions. ZA (firewall only) is compatible with other AVs (without a firewall) not just Windows Defender. :)

    No specific antiransomware protection beyond ZAX. Before I tried ZA antiransomware then I was running it with Vodooshield. Now I left ZA alone as I simply use backups as plan B. Anyway, ransomware is overall loosing pace ad intensity.

    Never used it and no idea on what it does. So difficult to comment on compatibility. Sorry.

    How does ZA's Pro Firewall differ from ZA's Free Firewall?

    Sorry, long time not using the free version....
    For sure the free version has no custom rules options (e.g. opening a specific port) but no idea if the application control component (HIPS) is the same or been stripped out in the free version.

    Does ZA's FW require a restart when you install it? I would like to test it with Shadow Defender (SD) but SD doesn't allow restarts.

    Normally ZA does not need a restart.
