ZA AV 11.0.000.038 - Zone Alarm Pop Up Window
I have had what looks like a Zone Alarm window pop up on my screen saying that my version of Zone Alarm is out of date and I need to click the image to update it. However I am suspicious as this method of update has never been used by Zone Alarm before.
Also if I go into Zone Alarm it tells me that I am fully protected. My version details are below:
ZoneAlarm with Antivirus version: 11.0.000.038
Vsmon version: 11.0.000.038
Driver version: 11.0.000.038
Antivirus engine version: 126.96.36.199
Antivirus signature DAT file version: 1126965248
ZoneAlarm Browser Security: 1.5.393.22
ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Scanner: 188.8.131.52
Can anyone tell me if this is Zone Alarm requesting this or whether it is malware?

Yes, it is legit. However the safer procedure would be (applicable to licensed version of ZA):
1. Download the latest version of ZA Suite from here:
Save it to your desktop. Mind to choose the right installer that for you is ZoneAlarm Pro Antivirus +Firewall.
2. Take well note of your ZA license key
3. Now remove ZA from windows-control panel add/remove programs (XP) or uninstall a program (VISTA, WIN7, WIN8).
4. Reboot the PC
5. Turn ON windows firewall
6. Run the ZA removal tool that you find here:
7. Reboot the PC
8. Install the ZA you downloaded in point 1. Do not restore any previous ZA settings.
NOTE: please do all steps while connected to the internet and shutdown any other security tool you have installed (if any).
