I know it's hard to believe and I have that same feeling.
My zone alarm has been scanning my system for 18 hours.
It was set to do a virus/spyware scan last night begining at 11pm.
It's now 6:30 pm the following day and still running.
I'm using Zone Alarm version 7.0.462.000 and have never seen anything like this before.
in my task bar is the yellow box with the red magnifying glass.
And it just keeps running and running.
My computer does not have that much stuff on it.
The hard drive is only 230 gig.
So I don't know why it's taking so long.

Does anyone have any ideas why it's taking so long and what I can do?
Do I need to unistall and is there a newer version to install?
I still
have 99 days on my subscription so I don't want to loose that.
But I could use some help because I think this will run for another three days the way it's going.
And I'm worried that each week when it runs this scan, it will take more than a day to do it each time, and there is no reason for that to happen.
I do have a NAS drive on my network but I don't believe it's scanning that.
it doesn't even know the drive exists.
Any help on this idea would be great.
