    Default Re:(SpyBlocker/ Ask.Toolbar) detected in current ZA Free 7.0.462

    There is an issue with the new antispyware SpyBlocker/ Ask.com
    Toolbar
    in ZA Free 7.0.0462 XP/2000 - only.The "Ask.com search

    Toolbar"
    is recognised by
    some anti-spyware/anti-virus tools as "adware"/ ad installer. It is not really 'bad malware' per se, it is
    an ordinary 'search engine' that will show ads (within the search results page)
    - just like Google, Microsoft Live search, Yahoo, AOL/google search engines, etc.<hr>So the question will be: during the install of ZA Free 7.0.462 - you will have the option to install with this new SpyBlocker/ Ask.com search Toolbar or you can install without. If you choose to install, you would have to press &quot;always ignore&quot; or &quot;whitelist/ safe list&quot; for detections by your anti-spy/anti-virus software. Again, this is not really &quot;bad malware.&quot;<hr>If you do install the toolbar it will add a space in the top menu area with a small search box - by Ask.com - that's in addition to your regular default search engine choice. For instance: for my IE 7 web browser I have 'google' as my default search engine at the top right; the Ask.com search engine will be 'an additional' search box in the row below - separate and unaffected by either search engines. You do do NOT have to use the 'ask.com' search engine to benefit from the new 'SpyBlocker' feature. It is always an option.
    You may show it or you may remove &quot;from view&quot; = removed from view but still exists = not deleted, yet. You can also decide to remove/delete it altogether, with the Add/ Remove of Windows &gt;

    . Your choice.<hr>http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...ssage.id=74709
    ZoneAlarm Free 7.0.462 XP/ 2000 - only: comes with &quot;an otptional install&quot; ZoneAlarm SpyBlocker which includes the ASK TOOLBAR. If you do not wish to have a toolbar installed un-check the box upon installation
