    Default DL ZASS slows down computer

    Several times a week ZASS automatically downloads updates. I assume these are virus definitions, but I can not tell. This process slows my PC to a crawl. I there a way I can control when these update are downloaded?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    I changed as suggested setting the frequency to every 24 hours. Now I get updates every night at 11 PM. How do I set the time to receive updates to 2 AM or some other time late at night?

    I consider not having an option to set the time for downloading Anti-Virus Definition Updates a real issue as while this process happens my PC slows to the point that it is almost unusable. I hope this us corrected in the next update. If you have any influence please pass on this suggestion.

    My apologies!We are all Users here in this User Forum..

    I do not work for or represent Zonelabs or Checkpoint, thus I have no control over what features get placed in ZoneAlarm...

    The Anti-Virus engine used in ZoneAlarm Security Suite is an SKD ModuleProduced by Kaspersky.com (they control what features are in their product)
