    Hello, I noticed that the new Zone Alarm Free 2019 (v154) added a bunch of services.
    Does anyone know what they do exactly? Can I disable something? (I'm worried about telemetry)
    EDIT: many can't be turned off from services.msc

    - Check Point Endpoint EFR (EFRService.exe - Endpoint Security Forensics)
    - Check Point Endpoint Remediation (RemediationService.exe - Endpoint Security Remediation)
    - Check Point Sandblast Agent Cipolla (SBACipollaSrvHost.exe)
    - Check Point Sandblast Agent Updater (SBACipollaSrvHost.exe ..again?)
    - Check Point SandBlast Agent Threat Emulation (TESvc.exe - silently protects your computer from potential malware)
    - ZAAR Update Service (ZAARUpdateService.exe)
    - ZoneAlarm ICM NET Service (ICM-Service-NET.exe)
    - ZoneAlarm Privacy Service (ZaPrivacyService.exe)

    Also, I tried registering to ZA forum, but the process is disabled by the admin.. what is happening?
    This isn't a good sign..

    Oh well, I went back to v151 also for other reasons.

    It only installed:
    - ZoneAlarm ICM NET Service (running)
    - ZoneAlarm Privacy Service (stopped)

    More clean and with services I can control.
    (the new ones seemed related to the non-free program anyway)

    I stopped updating ZAFF when they stopped doing the full offline installers and could only get those damn web installers that i have had fail during setup many times.
