    Yes, you will have both. They have been combined in one engine with generally faster and more reliable operations.

    Updated my laptop (running vista) and it seems to have solved the problem, running an ultra deep scan now, the regular deep scan showed no infections. Also ran a deep scan on my desktop computer (windows XP) which also runs the ZAES ver. 8.0.400.020, that found the same Win32.Worm.IrcBot.60416.6 spyware. These 2 computers are not networked in any way, so very likely just a false positive. Getting the updated version of ZAES now for the desktop. I guess I will have to run version 9.1.008.000 whether I like it or not. Thanks for the info fax.

    I have had no problems with ZAES 9.1.008.000 with Vista or Windows 7 32-bit or Windows 7 64-bit..

    Plan -B you can always Backup things, and then Try the New ZAES BETA TEST ver, 9.1.045.000
