I use MS office 2003 and Outlook for email. ZA is configured well and works seemlessly. When I go to Outlook Newsgroup reader (yes, I know it is really OE) it takes over 1 minute to be able to use the program. The first two to three newsgroups I open to read are extremely slow, then just as sudden it is normal and all works without issue. No popup error messages, no virus or trojans reports, no malware. I also use SpySweeper and it reports all is clean. I double checked at Symantec and rend Micro and they report all is fine. Any ideas what is happening now? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
