I have a really frustrating problem with the later versions of ZoneAlarm Internet Security - every version since 7.0.337 works fine for a few days & then vsmon keeps crashing & breaking my internet connection. 7.0.337 was fine, absolutely no problem apart from the painfully slow boot time (five minutes sometimes before PC was usable).
I've tried pretty everything I can think of & found on the user forums - i.e. Remove, reinstall, clean, reinstall. Every reinstall works fine for a few days & then Bang, vsmon crashes. The symptoms start with "unable to load MyVault". I've followed the advice re clearing our the .ldb files, .rbd & .tmp files in internet logs when this happens, but that failed to fix the problem. I've even reinstalled Windows XP, but that has not cured it.
I've turned off the email protection as well & that does not cure it.
I'm at my wits end, if I can't get a solution I'm going to have to ditch ZA & find another firewall
