Is it for real.

The link seems to direct me to the "Buy it" site and the update appears to be the same size as the Purchase-able Product.

You can still download the 'free' version OK.
I have just done so with no problems at all.

I have used Zone Alarm for some time, and recently updated to 7.0.337.000 without any problems, simply by clicking the update button within the program.

I am not sure of your point?

Finding the free version of ZA on the ZoneLabs website can be a pain - you also have to remember that it includes the option of the Internet Security Suite with regard to the file size.

I've had 2 alerts today on my free v but when I click 'update now' nothing happens.

Where is the update feature, Salut?

I have just installed it and it seems OK so far. I was surprised at its much bigger size.

It has also integrated itself into Outlook and has four buttons relating to junk mail. I’m not sure what they do as I’ve not read the help stuff yet. I am a bit concerned that it will stop legitimate emails (an increasing problem affecting several of the companies with whom I correspond. Indeed, in my view, the companies’ systems preventing the passage of emails are a bigger problem than viruses!).

We will see.

skeletal - I have also just upgraded to 7.0.337.000 and found the zonealarm toolbar in Outlook. It is annoying when these programs do this. However as I use Outlook Express and Mailwasher fro emails I have just right clicked on the Zonealarm toolbar in Outlook and unticked the toolbar.

Eedcam - have you yet rebooted your computer? The red Security shield should then disappear.

Yes survey done that it is working what threw me was the litte Z icon when nothing is happening. Ive ticked the I will monitor the firewall in windows security centere to stop the shield. Just cant understand why windows does'nt see it it saw it before I updated

I didn't like the Zone Alarm Junk mail filter my self.

To remove Zone Alarm Junk mail.
Open Outlook go to tools click on the others tab/advanced options/COM add-ins and remove the tick from Mailbuddy Outlook add-in or select and click on remove. you can now remove the Zone Alarm folders from Outlook.

Thanks guys. I'll see if I get on with it, but if I don't, I know how to remove it now!
