I seem to be having problems downloading the new versions of the anti-virus dat files, but can't really get my hands on enough info to have a clue what's going on or even if there is a problem!
How big are the dat files supposed to be? My comp had downloaded about 16 megs worth of something, mostly the dat file update, and the progress bar was at about 50%, then it just seemed to quit! No message to say it had succeeded or anything, but I guess that's not unusual for ZA...? I've been having similar problems trying to download stuff in my browser.... gets to 50% then just goes zoom to 100% and seems to be pretending it has the whole file! File size is listed accurately, but the file has obviously not all been downloaded. I checked my antivirus version number against the one listed on this forum for today, and as far as I can tell, my version number seems to be older! Is there any place to get a list of the version numbers and what date each of them was released???? If the download had failed, why would ZA not give me some sort of error message? In ZA, in the anti-virus/anti-spyware, Main tab, it says everything is fine and that the definitions were updated today! YET, as far as I can tell, the dat file version number is totally wrong! HELP!!!
What does ZA use for downloading these files? Does it have anything to do with a person's browser's downloader at all? ..or does it have it's own downloading program? Is there anyplace to manually download and install these files?
P.S.: Why is the za on my system called "Zone Alarm Security Suite" and any reference to this suite on this website is called "Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite"? Is there something wrong here?
