I too went back to 4.5 after 2 days of woe with ZoneAlarm 5.

No problems for me, so far. Windows ME

ZA 5.0 seems to be more thorough and tends to take a while before allowing internet access, I found that this sometimes causes a timeout error in Outlook Express, but clicking refresh seems to cure problem. Am running ZA 5.0 on XP Pro and 98SE machines with no real problem. It seems to like notifying that the antivirus defs are out of date, when in fact they are only 2 days old, but at least it is notifying me.
