Zone Alarm - hard to download


Installed a new office PC last night, and spent an unenjoyable three hours setting up up all the usual software. It gets easier, the more PCs you install, but it's still a time drainer.

I was surprised to find that Zone Labs has gone to even greater lengths than it has in the past to hide the free copy of its ZoneAlarm personal firewall software on its site.

I had to spend a good ten minutes hunting around the Zone Labs site to find a tiny download icon. Otherwise I would have had to download a 15 day trial copy of one its many pay-for variants.

It wasn't a big deal. Just an annoyance. Come on lads, I know you're a commercial operation, but if say you're offering software for free, at least give punters a chance to download the software easily...
