    Default Anti-virus signature DAT file number in About Box

    Hi

    How come the number in the Anti-virus signature DAT file (ZAISS version 9.0.083.000) after several updates is still the same? At least over here, on two computers. It only shows a higher number (= more recent number) after booting up the computer again. The updates appear in the Log Viewer, but the number is apparently not updated - unless I boot up the computer.
    As far as I know, this has started today.

    Can anyone explain what is going on?

    Thanks for your precious time.

    Ananda

    A GUI bug?
    Just ignore it, it updates fine even if the number is changing at reboot.

    I have noticed that if you shut-down ZA and restart(using an admin. account) the Anti-virus signature DAT file will update without rebooting.

    Yes, but as far as I know, that is not how it should work and I doubt whether it is a safe way.
    The number should be updated after each update, like in every previous version and even like it was yesterday. It only started today...

    Kind regards,

    New unified anti-virus and anti-spyware engine in ZA Version 9.0:
    • Scans 80%-90% faster and combines anti-virus and anti-spyware into one scan
    • More advanced scan options– riskware, ADS, heuristic scanning, and more exception options
    • Additional on-access scan controls
    • On-access scanning now detects spyware

    I try to Update my Sticky Note on Daily AV/AS Definition Updates 4 or 5 times per day..
