    The entire product line has been upgraded. Here's what's new for the Pro version:

    * POP email not working when co-existing with NAV
    * VSMON crashes when visiting some websites with privacy enabled
    * Anti-Spyware update sometimes "not responding"
    * AV scan will hang on certain files
    * VSMON crashes when sending IDLock item via email
    * On some machines Antivirus/Antispyware can't be enabled
    * Propel compatibility issue
    * SmartDefense Advisor not working with Proxy
    * Multiple 'loopback' entries in firewall zones after upgrade

    I'm wondering why the update feature in ZA isn't working.
    It didn't tell me about 6.x either when I was using 5.9.something on my other machine (freebie version).

    the "new and improved features" is not too encouraging to me:

    " New and improved features in ZoneAlarm Antivirus version 6.0.667.000

    * Fixed - POP email not working when co-existing with NAV
    * Fixed - Free ZA blocking some Remote access software from accessing ZA Alert notifications
    * Fixed - Propel compatibility issue
    * Fixed - Multiple 'loopback' entries in firewall zones after upgrade"


    I had 5.5 free, it dropped the internet connection after a varying period of time. I had to reboot the modem and PC all the time. But... 6 series came out and I was stoked. I read bad things at forums but decided to take the plunge about two weeks ago. Within 10 days I was bluescreening, one morning, eight times in a row with random reboots. Yeah! My boot up times for a P4 2.8 laptop with 512 meg of RAM and an ATI 9600/9700 video card was way too slow. Nearly 3 minutes. I uninstalled Zone Alarm. Now no problems at all, fast boot up.

    They have a big blue screen of death instruction post in their official forum. It seems that a humble mention of this major problem and a fix would be in order in order instead of:

    " New and improved features in ZoneAlarm Antivirus version 6.0.667.000

    ****** However, it is friendly land kind of you to include links for those who have had better luck with this software. I will pass until they fix their software. As soon as I told my boss that I put zone alarm on his laptop (my work computer) he related a nightmarish story of crashes and bluescreens and lost data. I thought that he was lame and did not say much... I was well on my way to the same experience.
