Why would it need such an update? It's not like your antivirus that needs definitions and more.
I've used ZA free for sometime and really like it. The only caveat is the frequent updates that require huge d/l and on a dail-up system is far too long. So, the last update in a 45mb size, I just put it off, until i could get to it. Now, I pay the price or as this is the result.......
I could no longer stay online on iniital log-on with my ISP. It simply got there and hang and then time-out. I tried reloading the ISP s/w &browser s/w but it seemed not work this time as it did in other past cases. Finally, I disabled ZA free, enabled XP own firewall and it flew into action. No longer hindered it responded like it always did. I will now get the latest ZA u[date and reload it again. I just wish updates were more than, smaller and total rehashed pgms. with updates included as ZA seems to be doing. I like to point out, MS update service was on and after *maybe* it cuased my ZA problems as it seemed the next time I tried to enter the WWW, it started as above, well it seemed so.
Any thoughts or similar results???
