Some time ago ZoneAlarm was recommending the use of IHateSpam (by Sunbelt). For a while I thought it was great - but now I am seeing some very suspicious behaviour, for example -
1. The component IhsSpamFilterEngine.exe starts BEFORE Zone Alarm launches! (per monitoring via Task Manager)2. The memory usage by IhsSpamFilterEngine balloons up to 160 MB while it hogs almost all of the CPU usage for a couple of minutes
The impression is that I have an 'infection' that masquerades as IHateSpam...
By the way I switched off all the options in the IHateSpam client that seemed insidious - like 'Learning'. There is still a lot of Internet traffic.
Anybody else using IHateSpam?
