    Default Does ZA Anti Virus update Windows date last accessed?

    I'm in the process of tuning my defragger and one of the options is to move the most frequently accessed files to the faster part of the harddrive.

    But if ZoneAlarm updates the dates last accessed when it does a virus scan then sorting files by last accessed date is meaningless and won't help.

    So: Does ZoneAlarm's antivirus update the Windows date last accessed when it does a virus scan?

    Thanks,

    Russ

    Hi!not sure I follow the question, have you tried to scan a folder (right click with the mouse on a folder) and then check the date of the files?I did it and I don't see any changes in the file accessed date. You can do the same and check.Did I miss something?Cheers,Fax

    Thanks Fax!

    I didn't think to test it. LOL. Occam's razor to the rescue!

    I'll give it a go and see if I get the same result.

    Fax:

    This is not being as easy as I would have expected.

    If I use My Computer to view a file's properties it changes the last access date to NOW. Yikes. So I can't tell.

    How did you do it?
