I was using Zonealarm Firewall free version until 1 week ago, with no problems.
1 week ago I bought Zonealarm antivirus+firewall and I installed it on my Windows XP Sp2.
Appearently everything is ok and working, but since then I noticed a strange behaviour. When I leave my Pc and then I come back after something like 10 minutes or less, I move the mouse and then I get a wonderful hourglass for something like 30 seconds. Then appears the login screen with my name, but I have to wait for at least other 10/15 seconds before I can put my password. The mouse is moving, but no answer for the system. After that, everything is as always fine.
Since I have not changed anything else, I think that the problem is Zonealarm. I have no standby, only the lock of the screen and the original windows screensaver. I have no other av or fw installed. I have an Asus p5k-e with a core 2 duo cpu, 2 GB ram. Quite new setup of windows, I think I installed everything on august. I tried to reinstall Zonealarm using the version on the site (was a boxed version) with no results. The software is completely up to date.
I hope you can help me!
