    ZA 10 Antivirus/Spyware Scan Engine
    Detects and remove viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, worms, bots and rootkits.


    Turning off the Anti-Virus Scan is not recomended..
    1.) you could try the new ZA 2012 (ver. 10.0.250.000)

    2.) However, If you do not want the Anti-virus Scan , you would be better off, Down grading to ZA Pro or ZA Free that does not include The Anti-Virus that you do not want..

    3.) you could also Uninstall ZA and Try some other Security Software with or without a different Anti-Virus program?

    Its a known issue resolved on build 250. Be sure to start clean without using any previous ZA settings.

    fax,
    Are you saying to uninstall ZAES x.240 before installing x.250 or simply to choose "Clean Install" when applying x.250?
