Zone Alarm Cnet Review

Although I am using Comodo, I thought others might find this useful.

i've already use Zone Alarm for a while and I'd say it less restriction than Comodo. But since I like to be restricted,I change back to Comodo

Check out the reviews of Microsoft Security Essentials. Its free and beats most paid-for security suites.

MSE does not include a software firewall and is completely unrelated to a discussion about ZA.

your post has nothing to do with the subject !

first of all, as Corrine already pointed out:
MSE is an Antivirus, not a firewall.
this thread is about the review of Zonealarm.

PLEASE do NOT make this yet another "best A/V or FW / i suggest you try Antivirus / Firewall..."-thread !

That's the kind of thing I was typing about regarding MSE some threads back.

I tried ZoneAlarm years ago but experienced the dreaded 100% CPU by one of its processes.

I would consider it again but I have no need.

I wonder if this new version has ironed out those problems?
