Windows 7: ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall Free - Any Problems with Win7?

ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall Free - Any Problems with Win7?

I have one of the Free versions that ZoneAlarm just gave away.

Are there any know issues or incompatibilities with this software now?

I know it didn't play nice with VISTA, so I dumped it in favorer of Online Anchor.. which worked great and I loved.. but OA is not Win7 compatible, so I'm forced to use Windows firewall, which isn't a major concern as I also use a Modem/Router with firewall, so it like wearing my pants with both belt and suspenders.. but it lets me sleep well at night.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Never used it; use Microsoft Security Essentials. Haven't heard or read anything bad at this point, so the best I can say is give it a try, and post back and let other members know how it worked out. Good luck. :)

Tried Comodo before.. Extremely intrusive and I hated it.. Online Armour is MUCH better... best I've ever used.. too bad it wasn't Win 7 compatible.. and they had no time frame posted for when it would be.. But I haven't looked recently... Hmmm... Hold.. Right Back....

Well... What do you know.... They Released it YESTERDAY >
The Best Personal Firewall Online Armor

I guess I forget about ZoneAlarm now!

I STRONGLY recommend you try Online Armor > Best Firewall Software - Stops Hackers, Malware, Viruses, Keylogger & Online Banking Protection - Online Armor

I'll post if there any issues.. but I don't expect any.

Thanks All
