    Default strange download

    I was advised by my ZA program that there is a program update en.exe. I downloaded and saved it to my hardrive. However, during the download something strange happened.
    As soon as the download was complete, another file immediately starting downloading.
    File name was AU761UTT.
    I thought that was weird so I deleted the entire download and downloaded the update again.
    Same thing happened the second time but the tag along file name was something different.
    No only that but the file size of the download is supposed to be 58.1 according to ZA but on my computer it says 59.595.
    Is this tag along program legit and the file size ok?


    Operating System:Windows Vista 64 bit
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    What you are seeing is not a brief download, it is Windows copying the temporary copy it actually downloaded to the permanent file name.
    On smaller files you won't see this, but on large files it can take a while to complete the copy.
    (DVD images can take 2 - 3 minutes to copy over).

    I have never seen that before and thought it might be a virus/worm trying to hitch a ride.
    Appreciate the info.
