    Question How to schedule the download updates

    I am on a data cap on my ISP and I was hoping to schedule the "Download Updates" to occur during the freezone from 12:00am-5:00am. Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks!

    ZoneAlarm Up date check is set at time intervals only.

    From the Tools menu, select Schedule Tasks.

    Next to Anti-virus Update choose an option from the drop down menu:

    every 30 minutes, Hourly, every 3 hours, every 6 hours, every 12 hours, and every 24 hours time intervals only.

    You can click on the right to Expand to show detail.When the Last Update occur & When the Next Update is due to update

    You'll have to calculate what intervals will work for you to download virus signature definitions.

    Note: This is current for version 13.0.208.000.
