    Default Updates for extreme

    We have had zone alarm for 6 months and updated to extreme when an email came around about how forcefield closes a gap on internet protection
    We are happy with zone alarm
    But we havent ever had an update of the extreme software. Infact I dont recall an update of the previous one either.
    We get antivirus and anti spyware updates everytime we run the update (which is every time we start the PC - usually daily)

    Do we have an issue that our software isnt getting updated.
    Thanks

    Hi!
    which kind of updates? You don't need product updates so often and forcefield is constantly in contact with ZA servers as well as ZA Extreme during use.


    Right click on the ZA icon near the clock --> about --> copy to clipboard --> paste it here.

    You find the latest version of ZAX here. The next update to ZAX 8 will be ZAX 9 currently in beta.

    I would recommend to set ZA to update the antivirus/antispyware signature every hour (1 hour) under the advanced settings of the ZA antivirus/antispyware tab (updates). Once per day is not enough.

    Thank you for your info. Just talking about program updates only.

    We are not on the PC for hours but usually sign in for an hour max once a day but maybe twice a day if we are not working that day. We always run updates once the PC has started.

    We found with automatic option our PC updated every 15 minutes even when we changed the option you mentioned. And it turned the PC into a SNAIL.


    But back to our original issue -:

    We went to readme & found a link to update the program (not upgrade I mean /updates patches)
    ANd we did find an update there for june 2009
    we applied it and now believe we are up to date.
    Oh here is the info for our zone
    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version:8.0.400.020
    TrueVector version:8.0.400.020
    Driver version:8.0.400.020
    Anti-virus engine version:6.0.2.678
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:991866653
    Anti-spyware engine version:5.0.209.0
    Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200908.6485
    AntiSpam version:6.0.0.1429
    ZoneAlarm ForceField 1.3.153.0
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Anti-Phishing Database 1.2.95.0

    THanks (as I said I believe we are up to date now)
    Cheers N

    Not really possible the minumum in version 8 is 1 hour. Have you tried the latest version?
