THIS BUG IS SERIOUS as it prevents AV, antispyware, and many applications from working properly!!!
Ever since I installed the ZAP 65.700.000, when I modify a file and save it to back to my computer the Date Modified remains unchanged (*)
The same happens sometimes with the Date Accessed. The Date Created is always accurate.
Each file and folder on my computer is listed in my Windows Explorer with three dates attached to it:
Date Created (when was the file or folder created)
Date Accessed (when was the file or folder last accessed)
And Date Modified (when was the file or folder modified)
The problem most commonly occurs with Outlook Express .eml files and with HTML files modified by FrontPage.
This started only after I installed ZAP 65.700.000. I didn't have this problem with the previous revisions of ZAP.
Many AV and antispyware programs use the Windows time stamp in "smart" scanning. If the time stamps don't change - the files don't get scanned!
Additionally, many software applications rely on time stamps for a variety of functions.
This bug is REAL BAD NEWS and must be fixed super-urgently.
Thank you for being there.
The file's date modified is June 5, 2006.
On June 11, 2006, I modify it by adding new text to it and removing old text and so on.
I save it to my computer.
The Date Modified remains the same, unchanged: June 5, 2006.
