A lab in an unknown location in the world has taken Cryogenic frozen bodies and managed to bring them back to life. However the cadavers appear to have no control over emotion or have a consciousness atoll, striving for one thing ... food. They manage to break free from the lab and attack the local populace before they manage to put the world in red alert or even get the army involved. It has now reached pandemic preportions and the whole world is plagued by the living dead.

Your in your house when the news finally broadcasts the message.

Where do you go?

You know, I've always been bugged that a zombie's only primal instinct would be to eat people. I'm not sure if anyone else realized it, but there's some other primal instincts that are really deeply seeded in the human mind.

Although the thought of being... violated while being eaten alive by an (un)dead corpse might be much more disturbing than the standardized zombie outbreak...

"All I say is that I think it is damned unlikely that anything like a central cosmic will, a spirit world, or an eternal survival of personality exist. They are the most preposterous and unjustified of all the guesses which can be made about the universe, and I am not enough of a hair-splitter to pretend that I don't regard them as arrant and negligible moonshine. In theory I am an agnostic, but pending the appearance of radical evidence I must be classed, practically and provisionally, as an atheist." ~ H.P. Lovecraft

Oh, yes, they would be very stupid, they probably wouldn't even be able to walk.
I apologize for going off topic a bit, so let me go back on topic:

Assuming the zombies are your classic stereotypical movie zombie, I'd likely just try and gather most of my family and community(I live in a rather small one), and start up a caravan to try and find an area in which the zombies can't possibly reach, like the mountains or something.
If we are however dealing with variants of zombies, like the more modern movie/video game zombies, I would probably try and do the same thing as above, but focus more on trying to build up defenses/weapons on all the cars/RVs, Mad Max style.

Oh, I live in the USA. We got guns here. But I'm unsure of how effective how any weapon that doesn't dismember the corpse would be effective. The classic 'aim for the head' would probably work, but that's much easier said than done.
And a hardware store would likely hold some of the best tools and supplies to survive a zombie outbreak of any kind. Blades, saws, nail guns, etc. all useful in building things and dismembering and mutilating body parts, a win/win in a zombie outbreak!

EDIT: Typo

That would depend if animals would be affected by the outbreak. If not, then they would be a very useful asset to have around you, as most predators would eat the zombies. If they could be affected, however... Let's just say it wouldn't be a good idea to be anywhere near a zombie cougar, moose, bear, wolves, etc... And stay away from zoos.

The armor bit is actually a good idea. It works with sharks, so it'd work with people! However, building a fort would be a bad idea. You'd run out of supplies and need to make runs back and forth, in and out... You'd lose people like that. In order to survive, you'd either need to keep constantly on the move, or find an outbreak-free zone where the infection cannot exist.

well i suppose thats true, i actually like the supermarket idea it has food weapons and a limited supply of medicines, also heavy doors enough space for a small community and a lot of people would go there eventually for food

Being hold up in a small area is good for the short term, but it'll become a prison if you spend too much time there and the infected start to swarm it. They'll most likely be drawn you, just like you're drawn to the protection and supplies of the building. And it could get really bad if they have even a primitive form of intellect, as hunters can get extremely crafty when hunting their prey.
Staying on the move would decrease the chances of dealing with hordes, unless you're going through a big city.
A big city would be the worse place, most likely. They'd get infected the fastest, deteriorate the fastest(thus becoming a danger in it's own right), and in the early stages of the outbreak would most certainly be prone to panic and anarchy.
The same basic rules would apply to gun stores, super markets, pharmacies, etc. as most people would swarm to these to gather supplies.
