    Default ZoneAlarm Ignores Scan Target Specified

    Sometimes I change the anti-virus and spyware scan targets to a single directory or sub directory. When I run the scan, ZA ignores the target directory I have specified. Why?

    Thanks!!!

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    You could try this :

    1.) Select Anti-virus / Anti-spyware|Main.

    2.) Click Advanced Options.
    The Advanced Options dialog appears.

    3.) Under Virus Management, select Scan Targets.

    4.) Select the drives, folders, and files to be scanned.

    5.) Select or clear the scan boot sectors for all local drives check box. --------- ( Clear )

    6.) Select or clear the scan system memory check box, then click OK. --------- ( Clear )

    Under Help Menu
    Table 6-2 below provides an explanation of the icons shown in the Scan Targets dialog box.

    Thanks very much for your response. I tried exactly what you suggested and ZA did scan the target directory first. However, after that finished, it went to c:\Documents and Settings and continued the scanning process. But that is much better. With the other options checked, ZA starts scanning where ever it wants.

    Thanks much

    On target scans, you can only use the Virus Management.Use the Anti- Virus panel on top and click the tab Scan for Viruses only.Not the bottom tab that says Scan for Viruses/Spyware next to Update Now.
