Zone alarm again

Threaded View
About 2 months ago I was looking for free AVG and Zone alarm to tell
someone else about.  Now I have a different problem:

I've got an old Windows 98 desktop that used to have Zone Alarm on it.
I stopped using it at all for communication, and when the Zone alarm
account expired, and ZA kept bugging me to renew, I uninstalled it.

Bad move.  I am now having to use this machine for communication now
that my laptop (main computer) is at the factory.  Trouble is that I
can't find anything that will run in W98.  The URLs that korbendallis
(above) gave me led to a site at Zone Alarm and the file available
wasn't compatible with W98.  Spyware Terminator, suggested by another
respondent, doesn't appear to have ZA's uncomplicated firewall capacity.

It is possible that anyone has an old ZA setup file?  As Zone Labs
doesn't seem to be interested in a W98 copy I shouldn't think that they
would object.

Hi Chuck,

Found what you're looking for, although I can't recall exactly which version
you need. Maybe someone else can help. I do know that ZAF 6.5 and above will
not work with Win 98. You can try version 6.1 and if that doesn't work, 6.0
will be the one.


Friendly reminder: ZoneAlarm discontinued support for Win 98 and ME a while
back, so any vulnerabilities that have arisen since will put your system at

It has taken me some time to get back because I got the laptop back and have
been working on it.  I
am sure this is going to be what I need.  Thank you.
