Zone Alarm ends support for Win 2000


Recommended Posts

Anyone updating Zone Alarm Firewall on Windows 2000 OS may want to read this from thier website:



Windows 2000 Support Discontinued

In 2005, Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 2000. In 2010, Microsoft will end extended support for Windows 2000, which will make this operating system less secure and increasingly prone to hacking exploits. (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/support/endofsupport.mspx).

As a result, Check Point will cease to support Windows 2000 with the introduction of our version 8.0 ZoneAlarm family of products including ZoneAlarm® Internet Security Suite 2009, ZoneAlarm® Pro, ZoneAlarm® Antivirus, ZoneAlarm® Anti-Spyware, and ZoneAlarm®.

Note about pre-8.0 products:

  • Pre-8.0 products will continue to run on the Windows 2000 operating system and receive signature updates such as virus and spyware signatures. However, there will be new and advanced protection features in post-8.0 ZoneAlarm products that will not be added to pre-8.0 products. ZoneAlarm strongly recommends upgrading to a supported and current version of the Windows operating system.

ZoneAlarm may end services to pre-8.0 products at any time.

One more important thing about ZA 8.0 !!!


ZoneAlarm Free is no where near to former ZoneAlarm Free 7.0.483.000


Lost the most important functions of individual Program Control and traffic.


It took me 5 minutes to go back to install the former version.


It is not that the Free side that I am going to miss, but the compatability.


Once, given a hell of a time to McAfee to convince for a compatability and still using ZA instead using the firewall part of McAfee even I have paid to McAfee for that function..


What a pity after all those long years!!! :cry:

Even Comodo's latest version doesn't support Win 2000 (but an older version still does). Maybe a free (and a paid version)of a good firewall that has support for Vista, XP & Win 2000 would be a good product for Iobit. (Hint!)
