ZA always starts a virus scan shortly after booting up, even though it is not scheduled. Furthermore, even if I disable scans under Scheduled Tasks, the next time the computer starts they are enabled again.
Also, if update check is not scheduled, it is not possible to perform a manual update. It seems ridiculous for the program to nag you and warn you that your computer is at risk, and then prevent you from updating it yourself!
I run updates pretty much every time I use my computer, and scan frequently. But I want to do it at a convenient time of my own choosing, and not be nagged, forced or "scheduled" into it.
This behaviour is new to the latest version of ZA. The old
version was fine - please change it back! Thanks!
