Never used it, but ZoneAlarm is know for quality products. And I've only heard good things about their antivirus. U could always download the trial and try it.

I tried ZoneAlarm Pro - didn't like it, it hogged too much system resources and slowed my internet speed. Moved back to Outpost.

As for the antivirus - give it a try as well as Nod32 and see which you like better... It's all about testing products and seeing which best suites you.

Yep I tested nod32 and did not like the interface at all. zone alarm has a nice interface and it did not slow down my computer.

Yeah, I'll admit the interface needs some work and is hard to get used to (especially with the settings)... But I'm used to it and hardly have to open the control centre anyway.

Norton has a better AntiVirus. ZoneAlarm has the better firewall.
