I have been using ZA Pro for a few years but in the last few days I purchased ZA ISS.
Before installing I removed previous all antivirus and spyware programmes that I had been using (as advised by ZA).
Now I'm not sure if ISS protection is running or not.
It says both are on but there are no events logged.
EICAR file that was supposed to check if programme was working and ZA found it and disposed of it but only after I ran a scan.
Does this mean that viruses/spyware can be downloaded onto my machine but will only be detected when I run the scan?
(Sorry if this is an obvious question but I'm not sure what I need to do with this new software (maybe I made the wrong choices in setup) and want to be absolutely sure I'm protected)
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
