That statement is not complete. I had a AMD 64 FX-53 XP Pro SP2 based PC with a ton of startup applications and all of them plus ZA Security Suite (SS) 6.1.744.001 would start just fine. Of course the CPU meter would hit 100% for much of the long startup time, but everything would start and my PC would settle back to very low CPU usage right afterwards. Now I'm moving to a new AMD X2-4800+ XP Pro SP2 based PC. I have just a couple startup apps besides the same version of ZA SS. When I have ZA SS load at startup the CPU usage goes 100% for the longest time on both cores then it settles to about 40/30%, but ZA SS tray ends being locked up and zlclient.exe is 35% / vsmon.exe is 8% in task manager at the top of the usage list. If I start ZA SS after startup it loads normally and afterwards CPU usage is around 1%.
I really prefer ZA SS starting upon startup and no I cannot not start the other few apps currently loading at startup. Can anybody help?
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

Added Note: When ZA SS hangs this way when in auto-startup at logon mode the only way I can get out is going into safe mode and uninstalling then reinstalling after logging in normal mode. Done this several times trying to figure this out and it's very tiring.

Added: Something else I just noticed. Everything seems to be working except on the Product Info page's Support and Update section. There the Click Here for tech support link and Renew button do nothing when clicked.

Added: Just tried Panda online anti-virus/spyware scan. Reported 1 virus which it said it disinfected and 25 spyware cookies not disinfected. Afterwards same no action reported above.
