    Default ZoneAlarm Antivirus never does a full scan.

    ZoneAlarm Antivirus never does a full scan. It only does a small fraction of the total files on my computer. I use an online scanner to do a full scan. Some antivirus/antispyware solutions give you the option of choosing between a full scan of the computer and what may be called an intelli-scan or smart scan - a scan of critical areas where's there's most likely to be viruses or spyware. I get the impression that ZoneAlarm Antivirus does a "smart scan" only. Am I right?

    Only if the option is selected. This is by default after the first full scan. Check your 'scan modes' under the advanced options of the ZA antivirus/antispyware section. Ensure you are not running another antivirus at the same time, check you are on the latest ZA release 9.1.603.000 and reset the ZA settings if you have still problems.
