    Default Should I Update ZASS to 7.0.337 or Higher At This Time?

    Recently,
    we went 11 days without a new AntiVirus DAT file (finally got one this morning).
    I don't know if this was a problem particular to V6.5 or not, but it is making me
    wonder if I should update or not.
    In previous searches
    through the Boards, I have come across many messages about problems with the V7 products and have noticed that many of us still use the V6.5.
    I couldn't seem to locate any messages that actually told me that these problems had been fixed.
    I remember reading something about
    them 'working frantically to get 7 ready by the new year'???
    Have the bugs been worked out of V7 and if so, which one should I use?
    I remember reading that several people had gone back to 7.0.337 from some 400 number.
    I downloaded the 7.0.337 update quite a while ago, but have never installed it.
    Unless there's a compelling reason to use a later update, I'd just as soon use the update I've already downloaded.
    I live out in the country and only have access to a dial-up connection.
    I remember that it took a long time for 7.0.337 to download.
    My subscription is up the end of next month, if that makes any difference.
    This is the first year I have used ZA.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:6.5
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Remark: I am using ZAP (not ZASS).

    Yes ZA resp. Check Point gave us a VERY HARD time since 6.1.x software branches indeed.

    But it seems Check Point is following the learning curve.

    In previous searches through the Boards, I have come across many messages about problems with the V7 products and have noticed that many of us still use the V6.5.
    IMHO (personal oppinion/ experience) both all of 6.5x and 7.0.3xx branches are not as reliable as 6.1.744.001 version.

    New 7.0.408.000 might be a different story though. Yes you might try it (7.0.408.000) -- else go back to 6.1.744.001.

    I am using ZAP 7.0.408.000 here (not ZASS) and it's working ok (surprisingly!!)

    There does seem to be always a "golden" release from time to time (6.1, 5.5, 4.5 for examples). Perhpas the 7.0.408.000 is the new "golden" release. The 7 series releases is over due for a great release.

    Second that (using ZAP since version 2.4.1x -- all in all using ZA from its beginning here)
    My ZAP favourites are: ZAP 55_094_000 / ZAP 61_744_001 and perhaps ZAP 70_408_000.
