I bought ZA Security Suite yesterday. Having today read an article on Testing Your Antivirus, I downloaded the test files from www.eicar.com

To my surprise Zone Alarm allowed me to download them all without complaint! It was only when I actually entered the folder I downloaded them to that it spotted the first file. The others were only spotted when deliberately scanned.

Why does the Security Suite not scan files immediately after download?

Kind regards,
