I have ZoneAlarm (free) ver 7.0.462.000 and am happy with
it, never having a problem.

I get a popup saying there is an important update. I am not
sure that it would be a good idea to install it. After all,
it is doing everything that I expect it to do now. I like
the little icon in the task bar that shows me if something
is being uploaded or downloaded.

I am also on a router with DSL. Does anybody have a thought
on whether I should upgrade or not?

Thanks
