    Crap ! Hey, Franklin, or anybody, when did this 6.5.700 come out ?

    I find my four machines with ZASS have 6.1.744.001 and when I check for an update from the ZASS "Overview"/"Preferences" tab, I get the response "Your internet security is up to date".

    Are they staging the autoupdate and this was done recently and they just haven't gotten to me ?

    No...I think that the AutoUpdate function is simply inoperative.

    Crofttk,

    I have the same version as you and get the same results when I click "check for update".

    Zone Labs releases auto program updates by region so as not to overwhelm their servers. It has only been out a week or so. You guys should be picking it up soon. You can go to the main ZL website and download manually if you wish.

    I don't know for sure its region-based(most probably though) but notifications for updates are definitely staggered to prevent too much load.

    OK, thanks very much, Rilla, and thanks you last 3 posters -- this was what I had hoped I was seeing.

    However, whether update is functional or not and for whatever reason, and despite the fact that I can manually update, it doesn't look like I want to be moving from 6.1.744.001 until the smoke clears on what's up with the defrag problem or Zone Labs fixes it.

    With the newest 6.5 version, I have no wireless internet unless I exit ZA then restart on a fresh boot. Did not happen before. <--Just an FYI for anyone wireless thinking about updating. :cool:

    While I no longer use ZL products, when I was, I developed a policy of waiting for the 2nd or 3rd update after new major versions. Zone Labs seems to have either a very short beta test cycle or not releasing betas to a large enough base to get a good handle on conflicts with other software and such. I just got tired of paying for their products just to be a beta tester for them.LOL
