    Default Zaiss 9.1.008.00

    Hi Guys
    I've just run the install of the new version.

    Sorry if this is a daft question; have anti-virus and anti-spyware been merged into one? Previously I would have two separate controls and could run two separate scans (virus or spyware) if I wanted.

    Now I see just one Anti-virus/ Anti-spyware screen and just one control. Has my new version installation gone wrong (YET AGAIN!!??)
    Regards,

    Yes, they have been merged, so your installation did not go wrong.

    You can read about other changes in the complete release history, here:

    http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...seHistory.html

    But, in short, release 9.X had these changes (I underlined the answer to your particular question):

    • New Browser Security:
      • Advanced Download Protection:
        • Detects the latest zero-day threats in downloads that you initiate-before they reach your computer
        • Includes heuristic analysis and program check
        • Can run and analyze download behavior in a virtual environment if necessary
      • Spy site detection
      • Signature and heuristic phishing detection
      • Website safety check and rating

    • New unified anti-virus and anti-spyware engine:
      • 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

    • Program control features to stop advanced security bypass attacks:
      • Timing attack protection
      • Service control manager protection (not supported on 64-bit and Windows 7)

    • Other enhancements:
      • Many performance improvements
      • Reduced number of unnecessary alerts
      • Windows 7 ready (Free compatibility update to run on Windows 7 when it is released)
      Note: To streamline in an age where web privacy controls are built into the most popular browsers and email attachment scanning is included in the major email applications, privacy controls and inbound MailSafe have been removed with this release.

    Many thanks (phew). I must have missed the wood for the trees when I was trying to find out the situation.
