Thread: Upgrade of security suite

    Default Upgrade of security suite

    I recently upgraded to v of the Zone Alarm security suite. Previously when I ran a scan it would first scan for viruses and then for spyware and show a list of spyware found.

    When I run the scan now, it does not do a separate scan for spyware, but seems to do both at once. It does not list the spyware found when complete.

    Is this the way the new version is supposed to work?
