Sadly, a promotion is hidden in that article about Zone Alarm. For not so much better software.
AVG free has some modules disabled on purpose (rootkit detection, etc), so you will have to upgrade to paid version or stay unsecured. Also, it will not replace Firewall.

Looks like ZoneAlarm made a big mistake by trying Scareware tactics, a shame really, although I don't use their products, I have in the past and regarded them as one of the better companies.
