Hi, I am typing this whole message again as I lost the long message with all nice details about my problems as soon as I clicked on the preview post link. Anyways, I am typing everything again.
I have Trend Micro Internet Security 2007 and Zonealarm Pro 6.5.737.0 running in the background. I have AdAware SE Pro, Spywarebalster and AVG anti-spyware installed and none of them is running in real-time protection mode. I am facing the follwing problems with Zonealarm Pro and Trend Micro, both running:
1. The web browsers, IE 7 and Firefox 1.5, both open very slowly and load pages at a snail's speed. I have three tick marks for both of them in the program control section in Zonealarm Pro, still the problem persists. I have read mostly everything that is there in this forum and tried it before posting.
2. I can login my e-mail accounts on different websites but I can't open the e-mails (links). As soon as I click on an e-mail, the web browsers (IE 7 and firefox) try to open the e-mail but just in a few seconds, it shows an error like "connection timed out" and logs me out of my e-mail account. In firefox I had an error asking me to enable cookies and I know I have cookies enabled in Firefox, so I checked off the "block third-party cookies" option for Firefox in the Privacy section of Zonealarm Pro. I made sure Firefox and IE both had htree tick marks in the program control section. I also added the e-mail account websites to the trusted section and restarted the system. But the problem persists.
3. My system's overall performance seems to be suffering greatly with Zonealarm Pro and Trend Micro both running. Applications open after a few seconds instead of just 1 or 2. I don't have Trend Micro's firewall installed. My OS is Windows XP Pro SP2. I keep getting a warning from Zonealarm for something called "Explorador de Windows" which is related to a file "sysact.exe" and I allowed it but I don't know what it is and whether it should be allowed or not.
Any help for getting rid of these problems will be greatly appreciated. I know the experts are busy people but I have already spent a few days solving these problems myself by reading posts on this forum and several others over the internet, but without any success. Thanks.
