    Default ZASS still causing CHKDSK slowdowns - when will the KAV 8 engine get implented into ZA?

    Hi All,

    I am one user who is suffering horribly from the problems related to the, for lack of a better term, iSwift / KAV based chkdsk slowdown.

    Before any of you naysayers come on and say there isn't a problem here...I am definitely experiencing the problem in the much discussed (and now locked) thread:

    http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...ssage.id=74182

    I have removed ZASS, wiped my objectIDs....run for a few days with no problems, reinstall ZASS, run a scan and they all come back.

    The net effect is my chkdsk routine stalls at 2% during stage 2 for over 19 minutes.

    Now apparently, this problem is being resolved in KAV 8. When is ZA going to implement the new engine....I cannot live with this kind of a chkdsk slowdown

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

    he??!
    I wander is it possible to have ZASS and KAV installed together??!! ZASS has AV engine and KAV is a Antivirus... so,does this combination work?! And if yes-why?

    I dont understand.
    exactly! with KAV and ZASS there are 2 Antivirus programms... so , in relation to the statement you wrote it should mean that this combination should not work ?!

    That is what I said.. The Kaspersky Anti-Virus in ZASS and the External KAV from Kaspersky are not Compatible, they will Conflict with each other..The ONLY way to get KAV8 in ZASS is for Kaspersky to Allow ZoneLabs/Checkpoint to Replace the Existing KAV Anti-virus, with a compatible version that Checkpoint can Compile into Zass...This is a User Forum No Tech Support or checkpoint Employees monitor this Forum..You can present your KAV question Directly to ZoneAlarm Tech support as a Licensed user of ZASS to: www.zonealarm.com/tsformPlease post back here and tell us what Tech Support said on this matter..--------------------------------------------------------

    Hi!
    they use the same drivers... Klif.sys (core kernel driver) so they cannot co-exist.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you install ZASS and choose to NOT install the AV component? Then I would think you could run whatever AV you want while still using ZA?

    However, you'd have to buy a license for your alternate AV program &amp; a license for ZA....so it's a more expensive choice.

    It's all academic though...it looks like KAV 8.0 is still in the final stages of beta and is not in full release yet....

    Hi!
    nope, you cannot install ZASS without the AV.
    You need to choose a different ZA without the AV (e.g. ZAPRO or ZAAS).

    exactly, that I was what I suppoused.
    But if I have Kaspersky Internet Security (AV and AS) installed, is there NO way to install ZASS... for testing purpouses etc.??? By shutting Kaspersky dow for ex.? Will only uninstall of KAspersky help to install ZASS?
