In today's Internet-connected world, is essential to have a good protection program. Zone Alarm Extreme Security is a suite that not only protects your system against viruses and other threats but also has other useful tools. For example, it can safeguard your personal information when you are online, and protect you against identity theft. You can also set parental controls to keep your kids safe from dangerous websites and use the anti-keylogger function to prevent the theft of your passwords, credit card number, and other sensitive data.

You can also use the program to make backups of your data. Your subscription fee will give you up to 5 Gb of space to store your backups.

The program also has a PC tune-up function. It allows you to backup and scan your system in search of errors, to repair the errors found, and to defragment the registry if needed. The interface of this function is intuitive and easy to use.

The only drawback I found is that the program is subscription-based, which means that you will need to make periodical payments to keep your program active. Also, the shareware version of the program shows a "nag screen" every now and then to remind you to purchase a license.

Speaking of the license, it may seem expensive, but it gives you the possibility of using the program in up to 5 computers, besides the free storage space I mentioned earlier. In sum, this is a good alternative to keep your system protected.
