    Has anyone tried this yet? I got an e-mail today telling me about it, it is
    $24.95 for the package which isn't bad. My trial Norton is expiring
    mid-October and I will be having to get another anti-virus so since I am
    using free zone alarms firewall, thought I might give it a try. Wonder if
    it will be as bad a resource hog as Norton Internet Security is? Does
    anyone have any thoughts on the subject? Thanks

  2. You stated the FireWall, what is the Anti Virus software ?

    In any case, if it was an unsolicited email, delete the email and move on.

    The e-mail was from Zone Alarms about a new package they have for sale now,
    sounded a lot like Norton Internet Security in that it is a package deal
    that you purchase of Zone Alarm firewall and anti-virus software, all made
    by Zone Alarms. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it yet.

    ZA Pro will automatically check my NAV 2004's current updates and bug me if
    not up-to-date. ZA will also suggest using their AV program in tandem until
    I update NAV's definitions/updates.

    I've never been spammed by the parent company of ZA. However, whether the
    AV program ZA/ZA plus uses is of any consequence is a good question. And am
    open to hearing all inputs on this. I could not find any specific info on
    their AV program at their website either.

    I suggest treating links on unsolicited emails as if they were radioactive
    cyanide.
    If you are curious, go independently (i.e. NOT using the supplied links) to
    the makers website
    -Zonelabs in this case and see for yourself.

    I'm also not a fan of all in one packages either. It might seem convenient
    from a
    consumer 'ease of use' point of view, but the phrase 'eggs in one basket'
    springs to mind.
