Spyware and virus Protection

The anti-virus/anti-spyware engine keeps known and unknown malware from affecting your computer by scanning files and comparing them to a database of known malware and against a set of characteristics and patterns (heuristics) that reflect malware behavior. Files can be scanned as they are opened, closed, executed, or as part of a full computer-wide scan. If a virus is detected, ZoneAlarm security software renders it harmless, either by repairing or denying access to the infected file.
