Ever since the installation of ZoneAlarm integrity flex client version 188.8.131.52 my system(s)(Windows XP-SP2 fully patched) now take well over 10mins to start up.
The system will hang at the "Apply security setting" and "Preparing Network" then again while logging on.
While viewing Integrity's log I see that "userinit.exe" is being blocked. If I go to the "Program Control" is it no listed. If I click the "Add" button and browser to it then click "OK" it still does not show up in the list.
I believe this is the root cause of the long start-up's and would like to "Allow" "userinit.exe" but can not.
INFORMATION ON OUR SYSTEM(S)
Windows XP-Pro SP2 all MS updates as of Dec 2005
No MS Firewall running
Norton Antivirus Corp edition 10.0
Integrity Flex 184.108.40.206
INFORMATION ON USERINIT.EXE
Userinit.exe is a key process in the Windows operating system. On boot-up it manages the different start up sequences needed, such as establishing network connection and starting up the Windows shell. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
