I noticed that the AV DAT file version was all screwed up (something like 2007####### instead of 943###) even though ZA was telling me it was fully updated.
I was still using 7.0.408.000 (tablet I haven't used in a couple of months) ... PC running 7.0.462.000 was unaffected!
Downloaded 7.0.462.000 and an Upgrade install ... everything back to normal (even after a huge AV update auto-download).
Now showing ...<blockquote>ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.0.462.000
Anti-virus engine version:3
Anti-virus SDK version:220.127.116.11
