Zone Alarm and Windows 7

Likes # 0

Hi, have been using the free Zone Alarm software on my Windows XP PC happily for a while now. Just bought an Advent Notebook which is running Windows 7. When I try to download and install Zone Alarm I get a messsage telling me that I need to install Windows Service Pack 1, however, when I look at that it tells me it is for Wimdows Vista. Don't know whether I should risk downloading it or not.

Anyone any ideas?? Thanks

Paul

no don't get trying to install vista's sp1 :o( zone alarm is not compatible with windows 7 but the windows 7 firewall is good enough.

Zone Alarm Pro (the paid-for version) is compatible with Windows 7 but I don't think the free version is.
