    Default Setting scans to run at off-hours

    Have had ZA for a number of years, but have not been using it for virus and spy ware scanning. I recently upgraded to ZA Sec Suite V.7.0.470.000. I set up my scans to run at 3a, off hours when noone is usually using the computer. Although my computer is never turned off, no one is logged on at that hour. Previous anti-virus and anti-spy ware programs have had no trouble running in the background at these hours, but ZA seems to wait until someone logs on in the morning to start its scans (around 7a), which is exactly what I don't want it to do.

    Is there something additional that I need to do to make the scans run at off-hours?

    Running Win XP Sp2.......

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!ZA will have no problem to scan off-hours but you need to be logged-in.But it cannot scan if you are not logged since the GUI is actually not loaded.Cheers,Fax

    I was hoping that would not be the case......my old anti-virus would run it in the background without anyone having to be logged in....Thanks anyway,,,,
