There is real-time protection against viruses, as well as auto updating definitions and scheduling.
Zone Alarm Free Antivirus Firewall will only check for new definitions once every 24 hours, while its paid versions will update as soon as new definitions are available.
Zone Alarm Free Antivirus Firewall's firewall features a log of the different programs that are accessing the internet.
The firewall will also give users a list of programs and their "Trust Level," which is a good way to quickly glance at suspicious applications.

Check your hosts file to make sure that it's not blocking i Tunes from communicating with Apple's servers.
But if you’re looking at a progress bar of the download that appears to be stuck, give it some time, especially if you’re on a Wi-Fi connection.
There have been reports that some updates take over three hours to download, perhaps due to a dodgy server or a temperamental Internet connection.
Sometimes, you might see a numeric error message when you sync, update, back up, or restore your device.
We have found that it sometimes guesses wrongly, so will start asking an unrelated webserver whether updates are available (this shows up the the server logs).
The response expected is of the form (and expected from update.zonelabs.com): We have not done any real research to see what happens if Zone Alarm gets a response other than this, but we're really curious if there are ways to make Zone Alarm behave badly if given "surprising" inputs.
If a website is able to fool Zone Alarm into believing it's a proxy server, there might be opportunities for malicious behavior. Note that Zone Alarm doesn't actually fetch the updates from the proxy site, it only checks to see if any are available.
The user is invited to an update site via a regular browser session that would not use the false proxy.
