    Default Slow Internet / Slow computer - Last ZA Update

    Hello everyone,

    It appears that after the last update of Zone Alarm :
    (Critical Issue (7/8/2008) Windows update (KB951748) causing loss of internet access)

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.0.483.000
    TrueVector version:7.0.483.000
    Driver version:7.0.483.000
    Anti-virus engine version:3
    Anti-virus SDK version:
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:956648195
    Anti-spyware engine version:
    Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200808.4325
    AntiSpam version:

    OS: Windows XP Pro SP2

    My two computers and it's internet connection have drasticly slow down.
    I'm very disappointed of this product.

    This new version was made in hurry or what ? Can we get an explanation ?
    There's still a lot of people using XP .... is this is kind of inner politic to only develop and works on Vista products ?

    Before that I had to do a restore system with the Windows update (KB951748) so my net work.
    And even further I had no anti-virus / anti-spyware updates for like 6 month ... (out of my pocket for nothing) which the tech support
    wasn't being able to figure / fix for like 2 months.

    Now updates works but at what cost ? Rather having a firewall up and no anti-**bleep** updates than a pc running at the speed of a snail.
    I feel I'm on a 10 years old pc with a 56k modem !

    To end up, I invite all users who have the same issue than I do to post on this topic to make things move.

    Yours faithfully,

    Operating System:
    Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    Product Name:
    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    I too am noticing a degradation in performance after the MS patch and the subsequent ZA patch. Running Zone Alarm, Counterspy, Norton AV, and Spybot S&D. What appears to happen is that as the system is up for longer periods of time, applications slow down. Performance monitors indicate that VSMON is using a fair amount of CPU in short bursts. The problem becomes severe after heavy file i/o operations (such as a system virus scan). I have to reboot to retrun the system to a usable state. I have disabled various pieces of software but I can't seem to nail down the source of the problem. Another system, on which I did not install either of the patches, does not exhibit the problem. Any ideas?
