    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    Because ZoneAlarm includes an anti-virus?

    I suspect that was meant to say "Why are the antivirus testers NOT testing ZoneAlarm?" (as it's not included in the link from the latest newsletter top story).

    Zone Alarm uses Kaspersky AV.

    Maybe it's just me, but if I were a new poster here like Clay626, I wouldn't have found the 1st few responses very welcoming or helpful.

    Do you have a better answer to the original question?

    No, but I wouldn't have responded: "Have you asked any of them?" or "Why Not?"

    When I don't have an answer I don't make snarky comments.

    'Why not' was not a snarky comment, It was rather a request for more info. The question was not making any sense to me. It still does not.

    Thanks so much satrow! Yes, I don't come here often enough. And yes, it was a typo when I meant "not testing". Just so dang busy. I've been worried (since I haven't seen it being tested with other similar products) that ZoneAlarm might be some kind of fake anti-virus program though it seemed well recommended when I got it.

    Hmmmm, it seems, like a few college campuses, Windows Secrets needs to setup a 'Safe Zone' for overly sensitive users that may be offended by certain words..

    LOL...
