Thread: Timing and duration of scans

    Default Timing and duration of scans

    I know that ZA F/W+ A/V is free and we shouldn't expect a lot but I continually encounter long scans (latest 2 hours and 45 minutes!!) which would seem to indicate that the scan starts when the main screen "guesses" it should but then goes on hold while the systems defaults to sleep.

    Anyone else experienced such? Any resolution?

    BTW the current ZA install is latest Vers 11.0.000.038

    Ensure that sleeping is turned OFF or delayed to allow ZA to complete the first scan. On successfull completion turn back sleep at default. Subsequent scan should be faster. Of course, if you set the sleeping time too short (e.g. 30 minutes) then ZA will never be able to complete a scan or subsequent ones.

    Thanks,
