    Default What about the problem with MS-Update KB951748 ? ZA-Update still needed?

    There used to be a message saying that a critical update of ZA Security is available for a problem with the MS-update KB951748 (leading on XP/2000 to loss of internet-connection in some cases). This seemed later to have become obsolete on my PCs. Now on another PC having WinXP home with SP1 (but without SP2 / SP3 for the moment, but this might change soon because Adobe Reader 9 pretends to need [one of?] these SP's) the message concerning KB951748 appears again, inviting to get a new version - but there seems to be only ZA 8 available now (which requires SP3). By the way, I never saw KB951748 in the list of MS-updates installed on a PC (using the software module in Windows configuration panel - I don't know the exact english equivalent to German "Einstellungen -> Systemsteuerung" - this is contained in the start menu). So the question is, is the problem in the subject still a security problem? Also, the message speaks about "ZA Security", but the PC has only the 'subset' "Zone Alarm Antivirus" - does this make a difference? Exact version that is installed now: ZA 7.0.337.000

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Antivirus

    Hi!go to ZA overview tab --> Preferences tab --> Tick on 'manually' check for products updates.This way you will not be prompted to update ZA to latest version (standard behaviour of ZA).

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Please note that you are running a very old version of ZA AV, this version had a particularly nasty bug, the antivirus get corrupted without any notice or problems. So, you may be out of antivirus since years... :8}You should at least update to the latest ZA 7 version:http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...483_000_en.exeAs a general rule, running an outdated security tool is usually like running without any tool. Better to upfdate or move to another tool that run on your system.The aboveis combinedwith the fact that you are not running an update OS.A sortofgood example of a worst case scenario; an outdated security tool on top of an unstrusted OS. Try to patch your system when you have time.Cheers,Fax

    How about the German version of this? The user of the PC concerned understands nearly no Englich and the present system is all German. Trying to just replace '_en.exe' by '_de.exe' or '_dt.exe' gives &quot;file not found&quot;

    Thx
