    Go to Zonelabs website yourself, and see if they have got the vista version
    completely ready yet!

    It's a long way from ready. I played around with the betas, up until the
    most recent one. It's slow, it bombs out a lot, and it doesn't seem as
    if Zone Alarm is too interested in moving it along. There had been a
    subforum on its site to discuss the beta, but that seems to have
    disappeared now.

    I would not recommend it.

    The Kaspersky suite is about to be released. It works very well.

    ZA on a properly configured Vista machine is a waste of resources.
    Or any properly configured XP machine for that matter.

    I wouldn't bother. The Vista firewall is perfectly adequate, especially if
    you're behind a broadband router of some kind with NAT and it's own

    The less low-level third party code you've got messing in the guts of
    Vista the better, I reckon.

    I saw an announcement that the new ZoneAlarm Pro does work in Vista <take
    that with grain of salt>. Don't know if the Free Zone Alarm works or not.

  7. Steve,

    I agree with you. I ran ZoneAlarm Security Suite for several years
    with XP. Had some problems with a couple of the 6.X versions, but I
    was satisfied overall. I was ready to reinstall ZA after I did a
    clean install of VISTA in Feb., but no version was ready. In the
    interim I have been using AVG Free. It doesn't seem to use all the
    resources ZA does, and considering all the security enhancements in
    VISTA, I think I will stick with the status quo.

    Yes, I'm running the recently released Vista compatible ZoneAlarm Free on
    Vista Business. The UI appears exactly the same as previous versions - if
    you're familiar with it then setup is a no-brainer. I had no problems
    installing and it seems to be working as expected.
