    Default Is My Virus/ Spam Guard Working Properly???



    Hi Guys

    Having recently loaded and configured ZA Internet Security, I thought I'd give it a test run via the Symantec security check. The Firewall tested out perfectly with a stealth rating on all the checks. The only problem was that the check gave me the following result for anti-virus:

    Analysis:
    WARNING! No known virus protection software found. This means your computer and data are vulnerable to virus attacks. Virus attacks can have serious consequences, including system damage and data loss.


    The ZAISS Virus and spam guards were set up with the default settings and everything seems fine and my XP security center is showing AV is on. Is this just Symantec trying to trick people into business for them or is there something more I need to do with the default settings to make sure I'm fully protected?

    Hi!you are perfectly fine, it is just Norton online check that does not recognise ZASS.Well, what do you expect from a check done by Norton? To see if you AV is working try the EICAR test. Download the zip and scan it.http://www.eicar.org/download/eicar_com.zipCheers,Fax
