In all that, there is still the problem for a simple user 
that Zone Alarm is
too complicated. Sometimes ZA stuffs up contacting sites you 
want to contact
so you must shut it down and open yourself up to attacks from 
the net in
order to do what you want.

Might I respectfully suggest that if you are experiencing such 
problems your ZoneAlarm install is eithyr b0rken or misconfigured ?

All XP boxen on my LAN use ZA free edition  for that extra added
protection and this has never happened (to my knowledge) to any of 
my users. (And I;ve good reason to suspect that if it had, they 
would have bending my ear about it in short order!!)
