I've recently got a new laptop, a nice top spec Core2Duo HP loaded to the hilt. I do a lot of web development so one of the first things installed was WAMP. With everything else running ballastic, requests to http://localhost seem to be very, very slow. Minimum of 3s +. In both IE7 and Firefox (I have searched and tried a quick Firefox only fix that didn't improve matters).
Some posts on the web seem to be indicating that it's ZoneAlarm that is causing the lag (even when off) and the only solution is to install another firewall. I don't really want to do this as I like ZoneAlarm and have used it for years, is there a known solution to cure the lag as I can't put up with it much longer
Operating System:Windows Vista Business
Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
