    Default Scan Schedule

    I installed ZoneAlarm Antivirus a few days ago. The fiest scan was a Deep Scan then once that completed it went to the default scan, QUICK Scan, and the date chanced. Will it always run a Quick Scan now or will it change again.If it doesn't change again then I can make the assumption I can change it again. And do the scans create a log file and if it does where is it located? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello;

    What you observed is Normal an by design, there is nothing to Worry about,

    By Design, when any version of Zone Alarm that includes Anti-Virus feature is installed, the First Scan will be a Deep Scan to insure that your computer is clean..

    Then after the Scan ZA will change the setting for the Scan mode to the Quick Scan setting by Design, after this, you may manually change the Setting to any other setting you want..

    Also NOTE, be aware that During the first 21 days (3 weeks) other settings in the Program section may change during the first 21 days, as Zone Alarm Learns how your computer operates, this is by default to configure the Best settings for your Computer..

    Thumbs up Re: Scan Schedule

    Thank you for your response. Guess I was trying to relate to another anti-virus I use to run. I now understand how the scan process works.
