After all that I recently posted and researched hour after hour , I STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM:A WHITE ARROW OVER THE DESKTOP ICON,and if you hover over it with the mouse it says: Zone alarm Security Suite-Update Is Running.
While this is happening you CAN'T run ANY SCAN and this goes on for hours without end.
The antispyware tweak regarding Spyware Doctor was useless.
PLEASE SOMEONE FROM ZONE LABS HELP, don't ignore this thread, there are many users with this problem
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
