Just for the record, I have a similar problem. Vista SP2+ Windows Sec Centre does not recognize the Anti-virus feature of ZAES Ver 9.0.114.00 AV/AS Ver 8.0.1.33 as being turned on until I turn the AV/AS inside ZAES off/on after each re-boot. A tiresome feature. Incidentally it is not only Windows Sec Centre. The latest version of HP PC Dashboard won't recognize that ZAES AV & on-line AV is on even after doing the of/on trick in ZAES. I hope that ZAES really IS working otherwise I will not be a happy chappy!
