    Default The old VSMON eating up RAM problem

    Hi newbie here *waves*

    spent the last 2 hours trying to find a fix,
    have unistalled 6.1 737
    , tried to re-insatll 5.5 and couldnt (or rather it wouldnt), have managed to get 6.0 667 back on but has same problem.
    Starts at around 40MB and soon zooms up to 200mb+ and gets to around 700mb after 30 minutes or so - its causing real problems when trying to load Cubase/Cakewalk etc
    Its the 'free' version'
    and I have a firewall on my Linksys router
    XP Pro SP21gb RAM
    (oh for the record.....Im a senior solutions architect
    in CA and SMS/ be as in depth as you like)
    many thanks

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.0

    managed to get 5.5 re-installed and seems to have fixed the problem. (not what I would call a reasonable cure though)

    Maybe ZA ought to fix the issue with the newer versions ?

    The architecture of Zone Alarm did change from the 5.5 versions to the 6.0 versions and with some machines, caused a conflict. It is hard to pin down the cause unless you know in more detail the running processes. The technicians at Zone Labs put out fixes as they discover them from reports like yours. In my opinion, you are no less safe with ZA 5.5 than with ZA 6.0 so I'd stick with what works for now.

    Any suggestions for the rest of us that only have 6.x.x.x and dont have older versions?
    I have a lot of problems with memory hogging on the vsmon and its leading me to consider just switching to another security product altogether - is there any way to fix this?
