    Yes. Why would you want to run an outdated firewall on a outdated
    operating system?

  4. zonealarm upgrade and winme aren't compatible

    see if one of your friends will let you use their copy then ask around to
    find out if there's a problem with that

    hope that helps

    I have an old ME machine and also discovered that new ZA won't work with it.
    I am continuing to use the older version. It will still do it's main job as
    a firewall. Block incoming bad stuff and warn you of installed programs that
    are trying to use your internet connection. It is still more effective than
    WinXP firewall. And... if you're behind a modern router ZA is somewhat
    redundant but good for outgoing warnings.

    NOt much is compatible with WinME. I'ts an OS that's best not used. Even
    MS will confirm that blanket statement.
