    Hi guys,
    I am using ZoneAlarm Antivirus and was trying to update it to the latest version using auto update. However, it keeps saying that it's up to date, although it is not. Am I the only one with this problem?
    I am using version 8.0.059.

    8.0.059 is not the most current version. Update to 8.0.298 and it will work. Just download it and install it.

    Normal... ZAlabs never turnON updates before somedays... just in case of unexpected problems.
    Monday, if everything works well they will turn ON autoupdate for ZASS and then slowly for the other versions.

    Good norm is to update only when autoupdate will notify you. BUt if you are keen to jump you can update manually. Many did already without major problems

    Cheers,
    Fax

    FWIW, I think fax is right.;)

    There is no need to rush in to pioneer updates from ZA. I hold back on updates even on windows sometimes til I decide if there are issues with updates/patches etc or even if I need the update.

    Unless you have clean os image ready to drop in and love being on the bleeding edge as first out of the gate. There is far to much of this debugging of vendors SW by us the users. But this is merely an opinion.
