Take control of network traffic using ZoneAlarm Free

Connecting a computer to the internet leaves it open to a range of attacks. Hackers can use a variety of tools to gain access to your machine, while malicious software can broadcast personal information to a server on the other side of the world. By far the easiest way to take control of how your internet connection is used is to install a firewall and ZoneAlarm Free proves that you do not need to part with any money in order to be protected.

Unlike some firewall, ZoneAlarm Free benefits from being incredibly easy to setup and use - there is no need to configure the program in advance as protection is provided from the moment of installation and settings can be adjusted as the program is used. The control of incoming and outgoing network traffic is achieved through the use of rules. Whenever a program attempts to connect to the internet, or another machine attempts to connect to your computer, a warning popup will appear asking whether the network traffic should be permitted or blocked. Over time, as you indicate the type of traffic that is permissible, ZoneAlarm Free learns about how your computer is used and can therefore provide better advise about whether network traffic can be trusted or not.

The beauty of the firewall is that you do not need to be a network expert to protect your computer - almost all of the hard work is done for you.

What's new in v15.3.060.17669 (see changelog for more info)?

- New: Support for Windows 10 Spring Update 1803
- Improved: New and improved AV engine
- Fixed: Bug fixes and Improvements

Verdict:

Controlling network traffic and appearing invisible to potential hackers is made easy with ZoneAlarm Free

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
