I use ZA Security Suite with Vista Ultimate. My ZA details being:
ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.1.248.000
Anti-virus engine version:3
Anti-virus signature DAT file version:945244850
Anti-spyware engine version:126.96.36.199
Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200802.3365
In addition I have a number of stand alone programs where I can do a spyware scan on request. They do not run unless I request a scan. These programs are:
SpyBot, Ad-Aware, AVG AntiSpyware and SuperAntiSpyware (all the freeware versions)
Just recently (perhaps after I upgraded ZA to version 7.1.248.000) I have noticed that when I download the latest definitions for SuperAntiSpyware, ZA
SmartDefense Adviser recommends to deny internet access. Previously ZA was happy with SuperAntiSpyware.
Has something changed??
Any views on SpyBot, Ad-Aware, AVG AntiSpyware and SuperAntiSpyware?? Are they useful adjuncts to ZA or a waste of time?? When I run them they usually come up with something (usually a tracking coockie) that ZA has not flagged as Spyware.
Are their any other freeware programs that are worth considering to run on demand as anti-virus or anti-spyware alongside ZA security Suite??
