I'm still trying to get used to dealing with warnings from Zone Alarm, but overall it's going okay.
I recently received an email about a "beta" free version called Zone Alarm Force Field. I'm assuming beta means brand new,correct?
Can anyone here give me some feedback on Foce Field + is it something I should download in addition to my regular free Zone Alarm program?
Thanks

Remember this is a beta version so use at your own risk or wait until a final release.

Thanks for the links,quietman7
It sounds like a good thing to have, but I'd feel more comfortable waiting until the final release.
I still don't know if this is an add-on per se or a replacement for the version I already have.
Thanks again.

Your welcome. I normally like to wait until a program is out of beta before trying it myself. However, it doesn't hurt to read up on any related information related to stay informed.

from what i've read the ZA Force field is going to be offered as a stand alone product. There was a beta forum on it but when I went to provide the link its either gone or down on the www.forums.zonelabs.com

If you want to check sites for safety ratings you can go to siteadvisor.com and plug in any site for its rating. There is also a free downloadable version, but I have no first hand experience using it, I use the lookup one site option as i need it.
