    Default Updates every hour even though I set it to update every 6 hours

    Hello,
    I have a question on how to set the update interval.
    I noticed that after I updated zone alarm to 8.0.020, it was updating every hour. Previously, it was every 24 hours.
    I then went into the settings to configure it to update very 6 hours. It still kept updating every hour.
    I then changed it to every 12 hours.
    But it stil updates every hour. Kind of annoying.
    Is there anything else I can do to make it update only a couple of times a day?
    I'm using XP sp2.
    Thanks!

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition

    Is it still the recommendation, over three months later, to go back to V7 rather than run V8?

    Because this update frequency feature is still happening.

    Hi!current beta has resolved the issue, so as soon is released the issue will be resolved.Meanwhile I personally recommend to keep the antivirus updates hourly, improving overall chance to be protected properly against latest threads. And no need to go back to 7 unless you have other related issues.Cheers,Fax

    That is good to know.

    I was actually running ZAAV 8.0.059.000 on Vista/SP1 and getting updates every three hours as I had it set. Then I booted into safe mode and reset my database and it started updating every hour when the database was rebuilt even though I had it set for every three hours.

    No worries. Actually kind of a nit in the bigger picture. I was just wondering since it had been a few months since it was reported.
