    Angry Virus Scan on every startup

    I have 10.1.079. My machine is Windows 7/Linux dual-boot. The Windows 7 has two users: Admin and User. My scan preferences are weekly/monthly/every 6 months. Regardless of the dsired scan setting (Quick or Normal), it does a scan every re-boot. In fact, today (May 15) I did a scan at 12:04 PM and the 'Next Scan' date is May 02, 2012! When I log into the Admin account the 'Next Scan' date is the same. Zone Alarm (Ext Sec) cannot add one week to today! When I upgraded to this version, I was assured that this problem was fixed. It is NOT!
