I thought zonealarm was a firewall, and no, probably not.

I have ZA Pro 4.5. It works good as a firewall. It's not antivirus even though it can block it. I use Mcaffe for antivirus. I have Norton it came with my mobo but, havent used it yet. I'm going to get rid of Mcaffe and use norton once I get my comp completed.

I've used all of the above, and I'd recommend going with Norton.

Just updated my ZA 4.5 to the new ZA 5 pro and it works with my Mcaffe Antivirus software. ZA offer antivirus software with the new 5 pro I think. The 5 is really good it tells me if my antivirus is up to date along with the ZA firewall.

I also believe Norton is superior to McAfee.

I'll go with Norton Cooporate Edition, all the other versions of norton don't work very well or are very annoying.
