    Default What is the point of scanning for spyware and not blocking it for next visit?

    It's like why bother scanning.

    I would expect that if you act as a firewall, you should be able to block spyware from revisiting after a scan.

    Am I missing something?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    What does the scanner keep finding?
    Things like 207*.net or doubleclick or direct revenue or valueclick or overture or tripod or clickspring or lycos or geocities?

    I use both Adaware Free and ZA Pro.

    I have most of those. They seem (according to Adaware) to be tracking cookies.

    And 207 is in there, tribal fusion, adrevolver, etc.

    ZA has a place in Anti Virus/spyware - Quaranteen - It is empty. When I scan it "deletes". I want "prevent from returning"

    I can do both scans, surf awhile and most of the **bleep** is back. Shouldn't ZA keep it from returning?

    You are not using the ZA properly.
    It will not block the third party and tracking cookies by default - you have to block these in the Privacy of the ZA.
    Or block the third party cookies in the browser itself.

    See http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/s...=&index=public
