ZoneAlarm Free AntiVirus + Firewall protects your PC like a mother hen [Freeware]

Way back in the day ZoneAlarm set the computer security world alight with a cool, very powerful personal firewall product which defined the world of Windows PC safety for years. Then the company seemed to lose its way, the technology started to wilt, and their products disappeared from popular use as other products took over. Well they’re back.

ZoneAlarm Free AntiVirus + Firewall takes the original personal firewall product and tacks on an anti-virus pack, so you get a two-in-one lock down of your computer where it counts. The Firewall prevents data leaking out unless you clear it, and the anti-virus mops up anything that manages to creep in via file downloads or the like. It’s a cute idea.

The company also throws in phishing and ID theft protection as part of the free package, although if you want web browser drive-by protection (against malevolent sites which deposit malware via your browser session) then you’ll have to pony up some extra cash. The base Windows only program is free for personal and non-profit use.
