Zone Alarm pro

Could someone tell me if it's worth paying for the pro version of Zone Alarm, please?

From what I've seen the only real advantage is a pop up blocker, but you can get one of these free or with a browsr. I really don't know what the other features are really supposed to do. It is also worthwhile pointing out that the chances of a home computer being 'attacked' is very unlikely, and probably pretty unstopable if it were to happen.

Forgive the complete lack of loyalty, but there is an excellent roundup of firewalls in this months PC PRO - including the differences between ZA Pro and the Free version.

The conclusion of the review seemed to be it was worth shelling out for. Maximum score awarded.

(I also use ZA Pro myself.)

Hope this helps.
