Thread: Manual Virus Definition Update?

    Default Manual Virus Definition Update?

    We have program updates set on manual, but virus definitions still update automatically, frustratingly stopping access for LONG periods.
    How can we set
    the virus definitions to update ONLY when we run the weekly scan (which we have set on automatic)?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:5.x
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Antivirus

    In ZoneAlarm, select the AntiVirus/Spyware tab, then click on the Advanced Options button.

    Select Updates from the left side of the Advanced Options Dialog.
    You can control the Update process from there.

    The *least* frequently you can set automatic updates is every 24 hours.
    There is no way currently to tell ZoneAlarm when to start counting the 24 (or 12, 6, 3, or 1)
    hours from.
    (I have made a suggestion to them regarding this.)

    Because of this, you may have to play with the update combo box and watch the clock a bit to get the updates to happen at a time that you desire.
    For example, set to 3 hrs, after the update
    has happened, then set it to 24 hrs.
    if this gets the updates to happen at the desired time of day.
