Zone Alarm Vs. Kerio

Q: Zone Alarm Vs. Kerio

I have a friend who said that I should fully uninstall Zone Alarm and download and install Kerio. Is this just a question of individual's tastes, or is it generally agreed that one is better than the other? I am not unhappy with Zone Alarm Pro and don't want to make the switch unless there is objective data indicating that Kerio is better or that it is preferred by most forum readers here.

Any advice?

Preferred Solution: Zone Alarm Vs. Kerio

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Kerio Vs Zone Alarm

Kerio's full features turn off after a thirty day trial if you do not purchase their paid version.I personally prefer ZA which I have been using successfully for years.If, for some reason you do not like ZA try the following:Comodo firewall (freeware)http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/

I have gone through all the steps to clean and protect my computer (Windows XP Dell) and thought I was really clever. Took me best part of a day. However, my partner can't now connect to the internet from his laptop, (also running Windows XP), and I am about to fall asleep trying to suss out how to find the IP address of the laptop to add to the trusted zone of Zone Alarms: which keeps flashing up messages that various addresses are trying to access my ports!! Help, before I lose all credibility. My computer is now trussed up like a turkey, and I am about to become single again.

A:Unable To Add Laptop To Trusted Zone In Zone Alarm

I'm in the same situation, and have learned a few things. Go to Start > Run >cmd. In the black box, type ipconfig. This will give you the ip address of the computer you're on, as well as the gateway ip address of the wireless router. I also have zonealarm firewall, so I added the ip address to the trusted zone. You may also want to check your wireless router's info because depending on the security you've set, it may ask you for a code (WEP or WPA). Let's start here and see what happens. Sounds like this will be one for many inputs...

I have been really happy with the security that Zone Alarm has offered me so far, but I do have a few gripes with it as of late. If I try to open Firefox while Zone Alarm is running, I will get a "this page cannot be displayed" type error. Same thing if I use Internet Explorer. If I keep refreshing or restarting Internet Explorer it will eventually work. Only them am I able to open Firefox and get it to connect (let me know if that doesn't make any sense). Sometimes I have to shut down Zone Alarm to connect to the internet on either browser and this gets quite annoying. I want to keep the security it brings, but it can e quite a hassle. It also either takes forever or won't allow me to log in to websites like MySpace.com. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

I run the Plus version myself. I have other things to handle what the Pro adds to Plus.

The free version is good ... I got the Plus because there was an instant off $10 coupon, so I got it cheaper than regular retail ... and the relatively small amount of money was worth what the Plus added to the capabilities.

Hi Allex. Welcome!

Usually ZoneAlarm will pop up a little window asking if you want to allow the program to access the internet and you should be able to select a box for ZA to remember your choice next time.

If you right click on the ZA icon in the system tray and shutdown ZA can you get on the 'net?

I came into the Zone Alarm scenario about six months ago with Version 45.594.00 which was a joy to use.However subsequent versions drove me up the wall,so much so that i gave the whole idea up and changed to something else.
Just recently i have revisited with Version 55.062.004.What joy it's a real cracker.

I do have windows firewall but ZA is much better.I was told that this problem was down to the new MS updates and having running ZA only denies access to any internet page. I don't understand what's going on as I'm not that compuetr minded - or at least I though I knew some things but after talking to my provider I'm very confused now.

A:zone alarm

It's likely you didn't shut the program down before uninstalling so not all components were removed. In this state it could still be the reason why you can't connect with Firefox.

Here is a link to some instructions from the ZoneLabs site on how to fully remove ZoneAlarm.

Let me know if you need assistance with any part of it, such as the registry keys. I don't want you going into the registry if you're not sure of what you're doing as you could cause serious damage. So if you're not sure, let me know and I'll be happy to help.

(free edition, naturally enough for me) Finally said (and to myself, initially.... pride, ya' know) Enough is enough.Heard (read) other comments to the effect that the new ZA version & winXP (expecially SP2) might be ah, somewhat problematic.Installed Sygate (free) and applied what I'd learned about firewalls in generalduring my ZA experiments in trial & error (especially error, unfortunately).Seem to have met with an additional degree of success.That's my story & I'm stickin' to it.Please forgive me if I give any wrong impressions about ZA.I admire any company that produces a needed software program.Gives it away, for the greater good of the greater amount of people.Online.

There are reported problems with ZA and SP2, but only some versions are mentioned here:

My OS is Windows XP Home. It was installed on the 15th of December 2005 together with my security programmes - ZoneAlarm v.6.1737.000; AVG 7.0; Trojan Hunter, TDS Process Guard; Ad-Aware Personal, SpywareBlaster; SpywareGuard; and Microsoft Antispyware. The security programmes are always enabled and they are updated twice a day.

Zone Alarm shows me that during the past 20 days it has blocked 20208 intrusions, of which 3788 were highly rated. Its Firewall has blocked 20213 attempts, and 32 programmes have been secured for the Internet.

My computer has a Broadband connection for perhaps eight or nine hours a day. I rarely surf and I avoid doubtful sites.

Should I be receiving a thousand intrusions every ten hours ?

Zone Alarm was highly recommended but its high detection rate has me wondering if it shows too many false positives.

A:Value Of Zone Alarm ?

I've been using ZA Security Suite for about two years and had no problems with it. I checked it out with a Tech talk forum, Myway Tech Talk. Extremely knowledgable people on there and they are all of the opinion that ZA is one of the very best anti spyware/virus scanners/Firewall out there. Stick with it, it will keep you safe. If you go in to ZA Alerts and Logs you can turn off the notifications and ZA will happily run in the background and do it's thing without bothering you. Although the quantity of alerts you are getting appears high it's nothing to be concerned about.

A:Zone Alarm

Imagine if ZA didn't block!
I think much of this sort of thing is just internet noise pinging you.
Best thing, in addition to ZA, is get a hardware router. Then ZA will not have to work so hard defending you (and writing a loooooooooooooooooong log to your drive), as the router will reject most of that trash. There are days when I watch the router with disbelief as China Telecom, and communication companies from every corner of the world are hitting the router. Yet only 2-3/day actually make it through for ZA to deal with. Of concern are things that are outgoing, and both ZA and the router will make you safer.
At least that's my understanding how it all works

If you are using the free version, my suggestion would be to turn on the WIN XP Firewall, unistall ZoneAlarm, install one of the other free software firewalls, then disable the WinXP Firewall. How are you connected? Are you using a router?The most important thing to keep in mind, regardless of which anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware and firewall you use ( http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/default.mspx ) is to keep it UPDATED, just as it is important to make sure you have all windows critical and security updates. + = http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/...t.aspx?ln=en-us

Im using ZoneAlarm Security suite, it is just great, with the fierce firewall against hackers, i guarantee
besides, McAfee and Norton are not good programs in my opinion. They will slow down your computer much more than Zone Alarm. My advice is, if you want an Antivirus, just think about Bit Defender or Kaspersky ;)

Then it gives a choice of selecting whether to keep it in the Internet Zone or Allowing it into the Trusted Zone. Then I can also Name this new network (optional). Then Okay or Cancel.

Is this something new or has someone hacked into my computer and is trying to connect to the internet some other way?

P.S. The box is still up asking for this permission and not sure whether to allow it or not. Or again, have I been hacked?

Hey folks,
I've never seen this before. Upon the advice of one of our own malware experts, I was advised to use a different firewall than the default windows one. I was so unlucky as to choose Zone Alarm free 9. This application has done nothing but reeked havoc on my applications including screen reading apps I need just to get around the computer since I've been blind all of my life as most of you may know. In fact I can't do anything with internet explorer since ZA throws up an alert and my screen reader can't read it. I tried several ways to get rid of the alerts until I find an accessible firewall that doesn't kill my essentials. I have tried using Win Patrol to delete the file that causes the alerts to pop up, I tried uninstalling ZA completely with Revo Uninstaller first, and now ever since, when uninstalling it, I constantly get the message that one of it's files is missing. I can't delete the program files folder directory since the dang thing is running. How do I get this thing out of my way? MSConfig doesn't even allow it to terminate when unchecking it in the list. any input would be great.

Many thanks,

i used to use Zone Alarm until i ran into difficulty when it affected AOL. i now use a firewall called HACKERSMACKER. i hear that Zone Alarm claims it has solved the AOL problem. which of these firewalls is better?
also,i read about a free Antivirus program-AVAST.
is this as good as McFee?
thanks.

ZA definately has more users than the other and Avast is also a great anti-virus , i`d go with them .
