    Default Is this a real ZA update, or was I fooled by a virus impersonator?

    I got a very unfamiliar-looking window that purported to be from ZA.
    I've posted a screenshot here:

    Some digging shows that it might have been a window for updclient.exe, which is supposed to be part of ZA. After picking through the registry for something added to startup and running a couple fruitless virus scans, I gave up and acquiesed to the window's prompt and subsequent reboot.

    Well, is it a real part of ZA, or was I fooled by a virus impersonating ZA?

    If it's a virus, can anyone point me to some removal instructions/technical details, because my AV hasn't been able to find anything?

    Thanks.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.5

    It's a fix for MSN 8.0 / Live issue - yes it's a ZA update (a small one which does not require a reinstall)

    Yes that is the normal update screen for ZA free 6.5.xxx. If you use manual updates and check for updates that is what pops up.
    You can see what update packages it downloaded and installed by looking at Localcatalog.xml in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ZoneLabs\Updates
