thx for the info my friend. i was very impressed from your result with this av at our malwarehub.
I would give it a chance...too bad that there's no guide for beginners
I like ZoneAlarm, what I do not like is its interface (outdated), but, in addition, it has a great protection and an excellent firewall.

I used it (the FREE Firewall) on one computer for quite a while.
If I hadn't switched to ESET Internet Security on all 5 computers I would be using it on them right now.:)

Nothing to share really.
I never heard a peep from it and noticed nothing with the system, no false positives.
Been told my use of the Net is why I don't hear anything from the firewall. Same for my antivirus program and Malwarebytes.
