    Default ZASS Unscheduled Scans

    ZASS 10.0.246.0. Win Vista and Win 7

    I have a weekly scan scheduled for Saturday nights at 1:30AM. However, I find it running scans seemingly at random. Certainly not at 1:30AM and not even on Saturdays.

    Some of the scans take forever. Yesterday morning (Friday) I found that it was running a scan that had been running for over 48 hours on one of the Vista computers. Right now (12:41PM) there is a scan running on this computer that has been running for just under 3 hours. I did reboot the computer about 3 hours ago, but why is this POS running a 3 hour long scan after a reboot?

    Why all the scans? Why are they running at times other than I scheduled them? How do I make them stop so that I can actually use my computers?

    Thanks
    Jon

    Hi;

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country, or around the World,
    without All the Details about your computer and Software that you failed to provide, without our ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..

    1.) first, Please Download the New Upgrade 10.0.250
    2.) uninstall your old ZASS 10.0.246.0.Version with the ZA Removal Tool: http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...load/clean.exe
    3.) Install the new ZASS 10.0.250, and do not restore any old Saved Setting, as you might re-introduce the problem you had with the old version..

    OK, I'll try that.

    Of course, it leads to the next question -- why didn't it install the new version automatically since I'm supposedly on automatic update???

    That is because the "CFU" servers are only activated for Targeted Users and when a Major Update or Emergincy Bug Fix is released..

    Here is a Posted notice from one of the Threads on the forum..

    250 has been officially released on July 27th.

    We also turned CFU on for only ZA 9.x users of Extreme and Suite at this time.

    You may download the Latest version from the Download page or ReleasedHistory page..
