I notice that, when viewing my logs for anti virus/spyware, I get the following results:
Type - Action
Update - Update Completed
Scan - Scan Completed
On-Access Scan - Error
That On-Access Scan comes about on boot up. I tried it with Load at Startup checked and with Load at Startup unchecked. Is this a problem or should I just ignore the results? So far after 6 days of ZASS 9.1 running I have not seen any virusses or spyware blocked in the logs. With ZASS 8 I had frequent blocks of virusses/spyware all of which turned out to be false positives after further inquiry. So far no false positives with ZASS 9.1.
I had received warnings from ZASS 9.1 that both Clipmate 7 and TimeLeft 3.41 were using "raw access to the disk." I then authorized these actions in ZASS Program control allowing those programs to do interactions. Those warnings did not appear in ZASS 8. Perhaps, these authorizations have something to do with the result of the boot up On-Access Scan.
I am running Windows XP SP3 and using ZASS 9.1.008.000 Anti-virus/Anti-spyware version 188.8.131.52 DAT file version 998546112 without the Toolbar installed.
ZASS seems to be running correctly since the Task Manager shows continuous activity for vsmon.exe and zlclient.exe. However, the hard disk seems much quieter since I upgraded from ZASS 8.
My cookie control and site access is done through MS IE 8.0.6001.18702. Could that be blocking ZASS 9.1 in some way? ZASS 8 used to detect "spyware cookies" daily which I then deleted. ZASS 9.1 does not look for those cookies anymore. I have MS IE 8.0.6001.18702 privacy options set to Medium which may allow those cookies while blocking 3rd party cookies.
