Would never install this anyways as it can cause issues with other
burning software.  This software is pre-installed on Dell computers.

Ugh.  Don't even get me started.  Any of those three are dodgy for any
number of other reasons because of the number of times I've had to deal
with them during tech support calls.

ZoneAlarm is known to cause issues with internet connections.  Case in
point a co-worker just had a call where ZoneAlarm was found to be the
cause of intermittent connectivity issues on the customers computer.
Kerio and Agnitum have similar issue although not as bad as ZoneAlarm.
