Can I Stop using ZA for downloads without reducing my protection ?
I have recently upgraded to ZA 2012
ZoneAlarm Security Suite version: 10.0.250.000
vsmon version: 10.0.250.000
Driver version: 10.0.217.000
Anti-virus engine version: 126.96.36.199
Anti-virus signature DAT file version: 1058942240
ZoneAlarm Browser Security: 1.5.322.0
ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Scanner: 188.8.131.52
ZoneAlarm ForceField Anti-Phishing Database: 184.108.40.206
ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Sites Database: 04.155
When I want to download a file, ZA automatically takes over. I don't want this as it is too slow. I want to use a download manager.
How do I turn this feature off in ZA, without reducing security?
Re: Stop using ZA for downloads
Under the advance settings of the web security you will find the settings to disable the download protection (you may need to reboot). However you will also disable the check by ZA malware engines. The file will be checked only by Kaspersky engine in ZA.
In summary: you cannot disable ZA without reducing your protection.
