Will the new version recognize Avast as an AV program?

Good question Bob I am not 100% sure ??? next version might or might not recognize Avast Anti-Virus software.

Here's what I got from ZONE itself:

Quote
Dear Mr. Gostischa,

Thank you for your email.

Currently the Antivirus Monitoring feature will recognize the
following Antivirus products:

SYMANTEC

Norton Internet Security Pro 2004
Norton AV Pro 2004
Norton Internet Security 2003
Norton AV 2003
Norton AV Pro 2003
Norton AV 2002

MCAFEE

VirusScan ASaP
Internet Security 2004
VirusScan 2004
VirusScan Pro 2004
Internet Security 2003
VirusScan 7
VirusScan Pro 7
VirusScan Pro 6

TREND MICRO

Internet Security 2004
Pc-cillin 2003
Pc-cillin 2002

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES

eTrust Antivirus 7
eTrust EZ Antivirus 6.0
eTrust EZ Antivirus 6.1
eTrust EZ Antivirus 6.2

Zone Labs is researching the possibility of recognizing other
Antivirus programs from different vendors.

If your antivirus program is not recognized by the AV monitoring
feature this in no way changes the protection of the firewall or of
your antivirus program.

The Antivirus Monitoring feature is designed to keep your computer
safe by detecting installed antivirus software products and alerting
you to lapses in protection. You can think of it as a second line of
defense in the event that your AV auto update feature has been
disabled, ZA will notify you that there is an update available for
your AV program.

These AV programs are the same ones they originally recognized when the AV monitoring feature came out.
Here is the reply I sent them:
Quote
The vendors you have listed are the same vendors that you originally listed
when the AV monitoring feature was introduced. How long does it take for you
to update your list? I know it's not rocket science. The list of AV Vendors
is readily available and shouldn't be that hard to add to the monitoring
feature.
If you introduce such an added feature to ZA then please at least fully
support it. If your intent is to not add any other vendors to the list, then
at least offer a version of ZA that is only a Firewall.
Thanks.

I'll keep you informed of any further developements.

I'm a very patient person but remember, my time is a lot shorter than yours. ;D ;D
Besides, I've learned that people with big mouth's usually get things done. My paved road is proof of that. ???

well don't know if i'm at the right page of this forum- ??? - just updated ZA to 5.1.025.000 version / German version - seems to work out fine with avast at first glance ... only trouble: avast seems to take endlessly after booting - and then comes ZA afterwards sometimes also starting strangely asking for some "vector" or sth. but after about 1-2 minutes machine runs allright (XP home ed.- SP2)  changed to avast from AntiVir and haven't regretted it yet - even got rid of two Trojan *.dll files already which haen't been found before  :D
