Zone Alarm??

I know Zone Alarm is a firewall, but is it an antivirus prog also like AVG/Avast and will it protect e-mails and attachments.

No. Zonealarm is merely a fantastic firewall which stops hackers from entering into your pc. You will need a separate antivirus program, such as AVG, to protect your emails and system from viruses and trojans.

Thanks Guys

I was telling a friend that she needs more than ZA as she thought it was an AV so you have confirmed my own thoughts.

Thank you both
