Zone Alarm..thought it was free?

  Chrisann 16:06 24 Nov 2006

I thought Zone Alarm was free but it keeps coming up with a box stating that I have 7 days left and then have to decide whether to quit or pay for the upgrade. On my old comp it has already gone because I did nothing. So how do I keep the free version?

You must have downloaded the Security Suite as a trial.

You've probably got the pro version installed - uninstall it and click here here for thr free version.

Sorry, meant to say pro version.

I think I installed it from a free Disk from this mag. but I did think it was a free and full version. Anyway will uninstall it and download the copy as above.

there is an option that is easily missed, to choose the "Pro" or "Free" version. The default is "Pro" which runs as a trial.

You probably missed the option to choose the free version, hence it installed as Pro.

Watch out you don't do the same again!

They hide the free version quite well!

Simsy, I forgot about that bit and we used to install it as free on the computers we built at work as well...oops.
