    Default Can not scan network drive

    I am trying to scan
    files for virus infections that reside on a network drive:However I cannot
    add the network drives to my scan targets.
    Under <Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware>,<Advanced Options>,<scan targets> I do not see any network drives to select.
    Also, if I right click on a network drive I can select "scan with zonealarm antivirus" and the scan progress screen pops up.However no files get scanned so it seems that scanning files on a network drive via this way does not work either.
    How can I scan network drives with zone alarm?
    I run on XP SP2, all updates installed:ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.0.408.000
    TrueVector version:7.0.408.000
    Driver version:7.0.408.000
    Anti-virus engine version:3
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:20071105075000
    Anti-spyware engine version:
    Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200711.2765
    AntiSpam version:
    no other virus tools are installed.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    I asked ZA support this question back in June and they replied that ZA7 will not scan network drives, only local drives are supported.

    Thanks Charleykay,
    I guess the helpfiles are misleading than.Under <Spyware and virus protection>,<Customizing virus protection options>, <Specifying scan targets>
    I found a screenshot that clearly shows network drives that can be selected for scanning.I'll submit a question to ZA too. Thanks again.

    I have ZASS 7.0.4662. I
    don't see network drives in scan target settings too, however the ZA Antivirus scans my network drives and UNC based (\\machine\share) network sharing.
    Does anybody know if
    it's possible to
    configure this behavior?
