Apoplogies if this question has already been asked!
I`m just coming to the end of a trial version of ZoneAlarms Pro edition, and can`t decide whether to go back to the free version or to pay for the Pro version, and would value your opinions.

For the non profit home user, there is no need to buy a Pro firewall of any type. I personally prefer Kerio, but ZoneAlarm free is plenty good enough.

Why pay?

the protection for home use i more than adequate in the free version only difference is lack of support from ZA, but you can get that from here :0)

I've been using the free version of ZoneAlarm with dialup and now broadband for several years - it's all the average home user requires if properly configured.

The free version as a very good recommendation, so why purchase. If you must buy the Pro version, then I notice that PCW and Ebuyer seem to have it on a special price offer.

Thank you VERY much.
I`ll stick with the free version without any worries.
Thanks again :)
