At $20, ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware is the least expensive of the paid antispyware apps we tested, and still one of the best. ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware includes an award-winning personal firewall that makes up for its lack of antivirus protection. But why stop with just antispyware and firewall protection? We recommend getting our Editors' Choice , which includes everything here plus the Kaspersky antivirus engine and identity theft protection as well.
Included within the setup for ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware is a Flash-based tutorial, something that none of the other antispyware apps provided. The built-in Help file is also excellent, thorough, and very specific, effectively balancing detail and clarity. And the ZoneAlarm online forums are active, with users worldwide eager and willing to answer your questions--something that none of the other antispyware vendors offer. Unfortunately, support by phone from Check Point is only available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday (excluding major holidays), and costs a hefty $2.95 per minute--about the same as what McAfee and Symantec charge for their phone support.
