Free Zone Alarm update??

Hi Guys

I use and always have, the free version of ZA and at present, its this version>>>

ZoneAlarm version:6.5.737.000

Do I need to update it, if so how to keep it free.

click here at the bottom you will find the download for the free Zone Alarm version:7.0.302.000 I'm not sure if you will have to uninstall the old version first, it may just install over the old version.

Current free version is 7.0.337.000

Download from:

You are unlikely to want the Internet Security Suite.

You can download it over the current version and retain the configuration - don't select Clean Install in this case.

I'm sure that when you set up the free version after install there is a tick box you can check so Zonealarm automatically checks for updates.

Hi Guys

have downloaded update and ticked box for future updates.

Thanks again for prompt replies.

I would still leave the Updates as Manual - it never seems to work and, in any case, there's always plenty of people ready and willing to let others know about a new version.

Or you'll find any updates posted very quickly on FileHippo, MajorGeeks or Softpedia, all of which I check first thing every day.

In general, you shouldn't need to worry about updating ZA frequently. It isn't like anti-virus software that needs latest signatures.

A firewall is a static piece of software that really only needs updating if it has bugs (that affect you). You can see the ZA release notes (and make up your own mind) at: click here

I take the if ain't broke, don't fix it approach.

The latest version came very quickly after 7.0.302.000 to sort out one or two bugs.

  Stuartli 11:37 28 Mar 2007

Slight correction - 7.0.337.000 was released just five days after 7.0.334.000 (released March 15th); 7.0.302.000 was issued around January 16th.
