I have a Dell Dimension 8400 (Pentium 4 - 2.53G with 640MB RAM).
Since I installed ZoneAlarm, it takes a good 5-7 minutes for Win XP Home (SP2) to get presentation of the user desktop after login. Once the system gets started, performance is normal but waiting for this state of normalcy is a real pain.
Is this normal?
Has anyone else experienced this?
Is is a configuration issue?
Should I add more RAM?
I've been burned by virus/spyware before so I absolutely want the protection but the performance is really unacceptable.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
