    Default Internet slowing down a LOT on computers with zone alarm installed.

    Hi. I recently installed zone alarm on my computer. I have noticed that it greatly decreases my internet download speed to about 2,300 kbps, where as it is usually 4,400 kbps. This only happens when Zone Alarm Pro is installed on any of my computers. If if it is not running, as long as it is installed this happens. I remember using zone alarm about a year ago, and this was not an issue. I've tried uninstalling zone alarm, and my connection goes back to normal. When I reinstall it, it goes back to **bleep**. I contacted my ISP, and they could not help me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    What kind of connection do you have? Also did you leave all the settings on the default? If not what did you change?

    That's funny, because I'm experiencing the same problem. I'm also on cable. Ever sine Zone Alarm was installed on my PC, it slowed down my net speed.
