Windows 7: Need Alternative for Zone Alarm

Need Alternative for Zone Alarm

I have used Zone Alarm Security Suite for about ten years. Their yearly extention to keep the product current was only $9.95. Next year it will be $39.95 which is a pretty big jump. I am going to switch. Can some of you tell me a good product that would have Firewall, Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus, the works? Thanks,

Why not do them separately instead of in a suite?

OK, do you have any suggestions? How good is the Microsoft Security Essentials?

MSE is great for AV and Malware... GL

MSE is fine. I do not like the lack of an email scanner. I can readily recommend MSE or Avast (free), which I am currently using. I use Malwarebytes as an on demand scanner which I run about once a week. I am currently using Comodo Firewall; but I am about to go to Windows Firewall with Windows Firewall Control and give that a try. We have seen BSOD's caused by just about every security suite out there.

This is for 3-pc's. $30 for straight rebate and another $20 if you have another Symantec software or other vendors virus software like Zone Alarm.

Personally i like Avast never had any issues so far. Windows Firewall is more that enough unlike other versions of Windows this version Windows Firewall is much better.

I do not recommend Norton. We have seen plenty of BSOD's where Norton was involved. Most security suites will cause BSOD's with Win 7 and there are valid reasons for this. It has to do with Win 7's own security levels.

The number of BSODs caused by Norton must be relatively few compared to the millions of us that use it without problems.

You can ensure it does not cause problems on your system and suits you using the 90 day trial.
