    it seemed to install fine, and i rebooted fine, but then i saw in the tray that the icon was a big "X" and it was disabled, i couldn't enable it, so i just system restored to right before i installed it

    I don't know what Zone Labs were playing at releasing this when it has barely reached the alpha stage, there were bugs everywhere and I had to reinstall then remove ZoneAlarm2 to get rid of it, what a mess. There were bugs stopping me logging on to this forum, downloading files, it had to go, a nice written up preview would have been better than trying it myself, it seems to have alot of new features and I will consider using in the future, but it is just not ready yet, I wouldn't even know where to begin submitting bugs!

    It also trashed my XP install , i had to go back a restore point also


    They have a LONG way to go before release ... but i guess thats what BETA means = bugs

    Yes, Electric there are so many bugs anyone completing the installation is looking for trouble and wouldn't know where to start submitting :rolleyes: . As far as xp goes I use it also, but didn't need to use my restore, all you needed to do, is go into safe mode, assuming you can as I needed 3 attempt at it before it would let me, and remove it through the registry after that it was fine and I removed it completely.:p I think in true it is a nice program, as well. I would give it more considerable thought for beta programs in general, and hopefully it will dominate the za :D

    it was working fine right after installation, but after the reboot it wouldn't work

    i loved some of the features, you could close pop-ups if they are loading for onger than 3 seconds!!

    I installed it too, but I guess I've been lucky so far- no bugs, no errors, and it installed just fine over my previous version of ZoneAlarm Pro. Only thing that gets annoying is when you load web pages that it blocks portions of it always pops up it's little "Privacy Policy has altered this page" or whatever. Bah to that.

    Otherwise though, some nice new features and a pretty new interface.... you gotta love the stats on the main screen:

    XX Intrusions have been blocked since install
    XX of those have been high-rated

    .... the soothing comfort of security(?) :)

    hey guys! see this, i told the ZAP 3 people of the problem i had, and they said:


    Hi,



    Please re-install 3.0 and choose "Erase previous settings" during the install.

    Reboot



    Best regards,

    Zone Labs Beta Team



    so if it doesn't work, u might want to try that

    I've had it on (ZAP 3.0b) for almost a week now, and the only problem i've had is that it insists that every time I make a fresh connection to the net it asks me if I want to make this the default. Other than that it's been running quite nicely thankyou, have a nive day.

    ta ta

    TOK:)

    go to "Privacy" (on the list of stuff on the left, overview, firewall, etc. ) and for Cookie Control click on "custom"
    at the bottom of that window uncheck the box ""show privacy advisor" and it should be fine, =)

    I would like that balloon to be dissabled on a site by site basis, like,"remember my answer"

    Zone Alarm 3 has driven me nuts :p
    After removing 2 I couldn't use 2 anymore, thought it was my fault too, but what can I do :(
    Have had to put 3 back on, which I guess will work next time I reboot.

    This is a little off topic.. just wondering if there is any add-ons to the xp default firewall that will make it more conifigurable?

    I have a good idea

    I have a smashingly fresh idea... ZA is crap why not use Sygate?!
    as far as software firewalls go it is the best and while it actually requires a brain to use it is still fairly simple...
