Actually, the latest zonealarm comes with anti virus protection... at least, I think its the latest. Probably not the greatest, but am not completely sure how useful it is yet as I've not seen any reviews, nor looked for any.

Not the FREE version, which is what most people use. Liz

from all of the review I seen, they said the new zonealarm doesn't even work as good as the old one and it antivirus wasn't good.

Imho-- Sp2 is a requirement. Argue if you want. Sp2 tells me when My zone alarm is turned off. Sp2 tells me when my anti-virus is out of date. Sometimes I play games and forget to turn these programs back on and a balloon pops up and warns me.At first I had a few problems but it was my fault.
