In the last few months, I have observed the longer the system stays on, without a full boot, the greater the time ZASS takes to complete virus/spyware scans.
Furthermore, you can't kill the virus/spyware scan when the system has been staying on (including hibernate/standby modes) for more than 48 hours. The ZASS would freeze in these instances forcing a restart of the ZASS.
These problems virtually disappear after a full reboot.
I never scan my PC for virus/spyware when I am working. I have a scheduled
scan every Friday night.
