Thread: Buying Zonealarm

  1. #1
    I am going to buy ZoneAlarm and want to ask a question that hopefully someone will know.

    And before any1 says something, I like it cause the Expert rules allow me to configure alotta stuff and basically I'm so used to it I can't be bothered trying anything else.
    And I don't like using false serials on stuff that always online.

    So....
    I am buying it but a friend and I want to buy it between us, and therefore obviously share a serial number. Is there any major problem in this? On the site it trys to get you to pay double for 2 serials for 2 users (like any company will do I suppose) but there isn't any fancy activation is there? It should work on 2 separate computers fine shouldn't it?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Buy It? Well I guess we have to support the author some how. Why don't you try the free one? I have pro but have never really bothered to use some of its features . I use other programs for those .

    Thanks,
    Yea, I've tried the Basic one but I need the Expert Rules specifically for what I use it for. And as I said I don't like using Keygen's etc on Software that always has internet access. Unless I get Kerio or something to stop ZA accessing the net .
    I think we could both use the valid one fine, it's usually when loads of people share a serial that something goes wrong.
    Hope so anyways.

    zone alarm doesnt have to have internet acces, it just watches what passes through.....

    try something like sygate, it'll give you those advance options.......
    great FTP site for awesome quality video clips
    yeah, you have to sign up, but its worth it

    Well I know that serial number is your license to use that software and sharing it would be against the terms of use of that software.

    yeah, that kinda what i dont get........ you DONT want to use a fake/illegal serial, but you DO want to use a fake/illegal serial.........

    man, thats like the riddle of going back in time and shooting your mother before you were born: could you have gone back in time?

    I don't get what you mean?
    I don't want to use a fake/illegal serial,.... period.

    I want to buy a legit one and use it on two computers. And I know that "technically" it's against T&Cs, but I don't see it as being a big deal. I ain't worried about that, just about whether their is any process of registering a serial that would prevent it working on 2 computers.

    As for ZA not accessing the internet, who actually knows what it's doing unless someone moniters their outgoing packets 24/7.

    Does the free Sygate have the advanced features?

    Thanks
