    Default "Clear Virtual Data" doesn't clear the cache

    When I Clear Virtual Data then open a browser (mainly use Firefox) and select the Protection Activity button it still shows 624MB in the cache. Any ideas how to clear this completely?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Extreme Security

    In 'Protection Activity' - the large number you see is the total
    'accumlative amount of MB's ' ForceField has "processed" = ( ___ MB
    possibly harmful data prevented from reaching your PC) - the large number
    has nothing to do with &quot;clearing the virtual data&quot; or the cache.<hr>The 'Protection Activity' will never be set to zero unless/ until you install a new ForceField or upgrade/ reset
    ZAX - otherwise the large number is just 'trivia' matters. The &quot;Threats stopped&quot; is the more important issue to pay attention to.<hr>Clear Virtual Data: will clear any leftover files that may have been overlooked after initial closure of FF protected web
    browser pages.When you 'clear virtual data' - you may wait until the 'hour glass' ends or 'activity light' on your pc stops running. It is a good idea to 'clear the &quot;virtual data&quot; with a little regularity.

    When I first configured Clear virtual data, I tick Flush pop-up to not show this message again.

    When I click &quot; Clear virtual data &quot; button an hour glass appears.This indicates that its clearing the
    data.When it disappears it has clear all data.Then I click OK .Then load Firefox.I never have to look
    at activity light on my PC.This is stand-alone version 1.2.144.0 .

    NaiveMelody, is this not visible in your case.

    Charles_B, I've kept the dialogue box and will usually see the 'hourglass /busy' symbol flash near the finish; nevertheless for me watching the 'activity light' on the pc is my 'meter' to watch.

    Thanks NaiveMelody, The reason I ask is because I have my PC underneath my desk and hard to
    keep tabs on activity light.Every time I load Firefox the presence of ForceField Toolbar is there.

    BTW I just install ForceField version 1.3.140.0 .Very smooth install of the Windows 32-bit XP version.
    I always uninstall using /rmlicense switch and then run registry application of CCleaner, then install.Never
    encounter any issues this way.

    Have a nice Morning.

    Thanks for the reply. Your reply makes sense however if you hover over the Protection Activity button rather than click it the message says &quot;__MB of data contained&quot; hence the reason I found it confusing. The message your refer to &quot;__MB possibly harmful data prevented from reaching your PC&quot; appears in the dialogue box when you click the Protection Activity button.
