Windows 7: Anyone using Zonealarm software with W7 ?

27 May 2009   #31

Windows 7 dual with XP SP2 ((Highly Custom))

yours is freezing? Can you link to the thread for it? I don't mind helping.

I'm glad ZA runs well for you and others. I'd just prefer a hardware firewall like belkin/seimens etc. The less services required for my PC to run and the less complicated a software layout, the happier everyone is.

Well, who am i kidding... you should see my XP install. I know what i'm doing with that software however XD

ZA i haven't used personally for more than a week or so, in years.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Service Pack 1

Using Zone Alarm Suite without an issue on my main unit with Win7 Pro.

But.............on the 2nd desktop unit on my network................could not get a internet connection after the install on that unit. Message was NETWORK NO INTERNET ACCESS.

2nd unit is installed on the network through a second router which worked without issue in WinXP sp3....go figure.

Firewall on 2nd unit got the DNS of the second router..........did not help. Uninstalled the software on the 2nd unit and the internet now works.

Anyone got a clue how to fix it to work on my 2nd unit that has Win7 Premium?

ZoneAlarm (free version) seriously messed up my computer just a month ago in Vista. It used to be a great free firewall, but there's a reason why many people don't use it any more.

"Free" has been know to have problems with Win7. Check Point hopes to have a new version soon.

I have been using ZA Pro version with great success on my Win7 Pro x64 box.
