NASPA Zyzzyva version 3.0.3 was a time-limited test edition of Zyzzyva that expired on May 1, 2015, replaced by version 3.0.4. It was released for Windows and OS X, but is no longer available.

New In This Release

This release of NASPA Zyzzyva, developed by Ross Brown, was the first public release since NASPA’s acquisition of Zyzzyva from Michael Thelen. In addition to branding changes, cryptographic software was added to comply with licensing requirements for protected word lists, enabling the addition of licensed copies of the OTCWL2014, OSPD5 and SSWL2015 lexica.

Installation Instructions

For step-by-step installation instructions, see:

Windows Users and Norton Antivirus

Please note that as of May 6 2015, Norton Antivirus has incorrectly flagged Zyzzyva as suspicious for Windows users. As such, Norton users must train the antivirus software to ignore the folder where Zyzzyva lives (which is either C:\Program Files\NASPA Zyzzyva 3.0.3 or C:\Program Files (x86)\NASPA Zyzzyva 3.0.3, on Windows). Here is a good summary of how you to do so: http://antivirus.about.com/od/securitytips/ht/excludefilesfromnorton.htm

Here is a procedure used by one user to correct the Norton issue:

First, restore the program:

  1. Open Norton
  2. Click Security
  3. Click History
  4. Select "Quarantine" from drop-down menu
  5. Click NASPA Zyzzyva 3.0.3 from list of quarantined items
  6. Click Restore
  7. Close the Security window.

Next, before exiting Norton, exclude further activity against this program:

  1. Click Settings
  2. Click Antivirus
  3. Click Scans and Risks
  4. Navigate to "Items to Exclude from Auto-Protect, SONAR and Download Intelligence Detection" and click "Configure" to the right of that item.
  5. Click "Add File"
  6. Click the folder icon to browse.
  7. Navigate to Program Files (x86)/NASPA Zyzzyva 3.0.3
  8. Select "naspa zyzzyva 3.0.3.exe" and click OK.

Zyzzyva should now be restored, and should not be quarantined by Norton in the future.

You may need to restore the program icon from the desktop shortcut at this point. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. From the desktop icon, right click
  2. Select properties
  3. Click Change Icon
  4. Click Browse
  5. Navigate to "ProgramFiles (x86)\NASPA Zyzzyva 3.0.3\images"
  6. Select Zyzzyva.ico and click "Open"
  7. Click OK
  8. Click OK
