Zone alarm new free combo

  johnanthony 13:35 24 May 2012

Can someone confirm that because this is free I won't get updates for both the antivirus and for the product. Because if that is true then this is neither use nor ornament. When I try I get an error and of course no update. I have opened the programme from the icon in the task bar and have opened tools and schedule and enabled both updates. I have restarted the machine and still get the error messages when I try to force updates. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

If this is what you are referring to then it has it limitations enter link description here


The new Free edition does have some additional limitations, though. Automatic virus definition file and signature updates, the locally-stored file that helps identify threats, are limited to once every 24 hours. You can always manually update it, but this is a notable limitation

I "upgraded" to the combo a few days ago and, apart from a couple of glitches with other programs after I'd installed it (I can't prove ZA was to blame), it seems to be working well.

I have seen no indication that it's carrying out the 24-hourly update, so have manually updated it a couple of times with no problem. What kind of error message are you getting, johnanthony? Is it to do with your internet connection?

Personally, I don't see 24-hourly updating as being a major limitation, so long as it's doing that. Avast was beginning to annoy me by the way it slowed everything down when it updated each time I booted up my PC.
