    Default New ZoneAlarm anti-virus update problem

    I recently installed ZoneAlarm Anti-virus 8.0.298.35. On earlier versions, it took 2 hours at most to scan approximately 120,000 files on my computer. My first full scan with the new version took 6 hours. I ran a competitor product on the same 120,000 files and it took less than 2 hours.
    Is there something wrong with 8.0.298.35?
    Thank you.

    Hi!yes, its normal. First scan is ultra deep then it should set itself to'normal'.Double check that scan mode is set to "normal" and that scan priority is set to HIGH and not MEDIUM.(all in the advanced options of the ZA antivirus/antispyware section --> virus management)Cheers,Fax

    Hi Fax,
    Excellent!
    That worked! It's up to about 2000 files per minute now.
    Thank you very much!
