I booted up my laptop that I haven't had on for a month or so and saw that I needed to update my Zone Alarm Security Suite. I did a manual update and got a message that Anti-virus/anti-spyware update was complete. However, when I compared the Anti-virus/Anti-spyware engine version on my desktop it was different:
The Desktop version was 8.02.42 DAT file version 100961224 AntiSpam version 6.0.0.2383
The laptop Dat file version was different. I did 2 or 3 more manual updates and the DAT file version on the laptop matched the desktop. What I do not understand is why it took 3 or more manual updates to update. Also when I do a "Check for Updates" on either system I get 100% done and it says Downloaded an update for Anti-virus/anti-spyware but the DAT file does not change. I always get this message if I do a "check for updates". I think I used to get message that my system was up-to-date. Version Information is as follows:
ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 9.1.008.000
TrueVector security engine version 9.1.008.000
Driver version 9.1.008.000
Anti-virus/Anti-spyware engine version 8.0.2.42,DAT file version 1009612224
AntiSpam version 6.0.0.2383
