Warning Just to let people no I updated ZA 4.5 to ZA 5 and it caused no end of trouble with my pc. ie programs freezing could not download anything could not shut down pc, Have now gone back to ZA 4.5 and everything ok. Win xp home
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 It seems to like notifying that the antivirus defs are out of date, when in fact they are only 2 days old, but at least it is notifying me.
I am glad i read this.I installed Zonealarm 5 and Onspeed on the same day and have been blaming Onspeed ever sincefor my computer freezing every 10 minutes.However i have now gone back to Zonealarm 4.5 and all is back to normal.Thanks.
