Thread: Sequence of Antirus Update and Scan

    Default Sequence of Antirus Update and Scan

    This may be peculiar to ZA Antivirus Free + Firewall app, but I have noticed that scans occur more frequently before def updates, sometimes in minutes sometimes in hours.
    Does that make sense (i.e. to scan with old defs before updating to latest defs)?
    Curious to know the logic.
    Thanks to anyone who can answer.

    Hi!

    right click the ZA icon near the clock, about, copy to clipobard, paste it here.

    I can't see this here as updates happen always before scanning. Typically at boot but you may have an old version.

    Thanks,

    Hi!

    you may want to try to first remove ZA and install the latest (10.2.078.000).
    Most probably the limit of ZAfree (only one automatic update a day) is causing this. I cannot see the same in retail version.

    Thanks. Will do as you suggested.

    BTW: I also have ZA Free AV+Firewall on my laptop. Its version is 10.2.064.000 and it appears to update before scan.

    Once again, thanks for the info.
