Installed this last night over the previous version. Installed OK, let it keep prior settings. I don't see any slowing due to it. Seems to be running OK, updated the anti virus OK.
As for the anti spy-ware, I would rather see it as it was so I know its there, and I don't know where it updates the dat file to now. I only see the update box showing the anti-virus has been updated.
In the zonelabs folder in windows\system32 I see my old .dat files, these were labeled spyware0.dat, and spyware0.dat.zlbak for a couple old data files, and my newer one was spyware.dat.zlbak. I wasn't too sure what the deal was, but thought maybe the file got renamed somehow during install and that was why the anti-spyware module wasn't showing up in the main program.
Renamed the newest .dat file to spyware.dat in safe mode, than restarted to see what it would do. It didn't do anything, it didn't stop ZA from loading either, and didn't show anything about the anti spyware in the program either as it was before. But windows seems to say its on.
I'm just wondering now what .dat file is it using, and where does it put it now? cause like I said when you do a manual update it only shows the AV as being updated.
I think ZA needs to just keep the anti virus/anti spyware viewing the same so you know whats up.
