When I have Automatic Updates on, ZASS phones home every hour and when it does, my system resources go to 100% and I cannot do anything else ... not even scroll!
I was hesitant to turn the updates off and do them manually for fear I would forget to do it at least daily but I was trying to get some work done and couldn't stand not being able to use my computer for 5 minutes out of every hour so finally turned the updates off.
Guess what?
With the updates set to 'Manual' ZASS still phones home for updates ... and more than once a day at that!
I thought 'Manual' meant just that ... it would only update when I told it to.
How can I stop ZASS from phoning home either until I tell it to or only once per day?
