Since I installed the ZA suite yesterday, at two separate times have the vsmon.exe process cpu usage suddenly spiked, taking 50% cpu for no apparent reason.
The first time I was gaming, and it slowed the game down to a level where it was completely unplayable, got maybe 2-3 fps whereas it averages far above 50 otherwise.
The other time I was just doing some random web browsing.
Both times it was over in less than a minute, but in the case of gaming becoming impossible, that is one minute too much.
*edit* It may have happened more than these two times, but these two are the only ones I'm aware of.*/edit*
Is there any setting that can make it stop doing this. Or if it is not supposed to happen, how do I fix it?
Also while I'm still going, is there any way to make it not display the irritating and distracting "bandwidth meter" in the system tray, short of setting the system tray to hide the icon?
system specs if useful:
P4 3.4ghz, 2gb DDR2, XP SP2, 2*250+500gb hdds, SB X-Fi
Windows XP Pro
ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
