My year ended for my Zone Alarm AV this past weekend. I renewed, downloaded the newest version, and did an UPGRADE install...
Now - it is ALWAYS trying to update itself - only it never gets anything. I have to restart my computer to get it to stop. And, even though I have set the auto update to only try once every 24 hours... A few minuted after a total restart, the program searches on its own for an update, but it never finishes... (I can see the systray icon showing that it is attempting to get an update).
I tried this possible fix, but it didn't work:
Update files may be corrupted. Do the following:
1) Boot into Safe Mode
2) Go to C:\Windows\System32\ZoneLabs\Updates
3) Delete all files & folders
4) Boot into Normal Mode
5) Re-run Update
I am running WIndows Vista, and Zone Alarm version 7.1.254.000
Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Antivirus
