Thread: Manual Update option ignored.

    Default Manual Update option ignored.

    I have set my Zone Alarm Extreme Security to update manually, yet it is downloading updates on a daily basis without my consent. Is there any way to manually control when Zone Alarm Extreme Security downloads an update?

    I'm Sorry, I think you have confused Product Update with Anti-Virus Update.. they are controlded Seperately...

    1.) Automatic Product Update is controled on Overview/Preferences
    (While you can Manually click on "Check for Update", it will check for both Product and AV Update, ONCE)
    placing a checkmark for Automatic Update does not activate Auto Updates for Anti-Virus updates, Unless you Manually Click on the "Check for update" button.


    2.) AV/AS Updates are controled in Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware, Main page, Click on Advanced, Click on Updates..

    It is Highly Recomended to Allow AV/As Updates every 30 minutes..
    as Hackers and Visus writer don't take a brake, and release 1000's of new Viruses per day..
