When i first logged onto my PC i checked the zonealarm logs, they were all blank... considering i just installed i think a day ago this should not have happened.

The first 3 above log entries relate to "Spam Filter was prevented from changing the settings of Zonealarm Security Suite by modifying the registry key (as above)"
The 4th above log entry relates to "Windows Explorer was prevented from changing the behavior of Zonealarm Security Suite by modifying the file: ZLDIR* "

Also, when i click on Anti-virus/spyware, Main...
Anti-virus On
Anti-virus Activated

*notice it does not say "On-access scan is on" for the anti-spyware.
when i first installed zonealarm internet security suite it did say this was on, in addition to the anti-virus saying the same.

*Also, its been 25 minutes now since i first logged on... if i go to alerts & logs within zonealarm...
Select "Anti-spyware" and it is blank
Select "Anti-virus" and it has Date/Time: 2008-10-19 21:58:42+1:00, Type: Update, Virus name: Blank, Filename: Blank, Action: Update completed, Mode: Auto, E-mail: Blank
I guess not showing any spyware update could be because there may not have been any new spyware in the 8 hours my pc was just off for... viruses being more common than spyware?
yes i could go to technical support as i have bought the internet security suite and force field, i'd rather seek help here first... i like the idea of having my info posted on a public forum, ie a permanent record made for anyone who chooses to see.
