    Default Yahoo links within Firefox

    are exceptionally slow. I have just deleted the lastest version of Firefox became it as becoming like molasses. Now since I reconnected back the links take at least 15 to 20 seconds before they start to downloaded and then it will take sometimes as long as a minute before the full page will open up. If I was on dial up I might understand it, but I using cable connection.

    As a matter of fact ZASS is becoming more slower connecting to anything whether I am using the internet or programs installed on my machine. I noticed that in processes there are two scanning processes, why?
    I have updated to ZASS 7.0462 back in December. I just did not have these problems before updating.

    I am not using the spyware protection from Zone Alarm because I have SpySweeper installed. I do use Ad-Watch and Ad-Ware Pro 7.

    Need advice. Thanks

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Ad Watch often conflicts with the ZA. It may even conflict with the webrrot.

    The webroot email checker should be disabled - also it cookie guard and spy site blocker maybe causing issues. Turn off it's antikeylogger and disable the antivirusif it has that included.

    The ZA spysite blocker on occasion causes issues. Turn it off.

    Make sure the dns and dhcp servers are listed as Trusted in the Zones of the ZA. Or like this:

    Make sure your DNS and DHCP server IP's are in your Firewall's Trusted zone. Finding DNS and DCHP servers, etc

    1. Go to Run and type in command and hit 'ok', and in the command then type in ipconfig /all then press the enter key. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side. Make sure there is a space between the ipconfig and the /all, and the font is the same (no capitals).
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall, open the Zones tab, click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted. Add the DNS IP(s) .
    3. Click OK and Apply. Then do the same for the DHCP server.
    4. The localhost ( must be listed as Trusted.
    5. The Generic Host Process (svchost.exe) as seen in the Zone Alarm's Program's list must have server rights for the Trusted Zone.
    Plus it must have both Trusted and Internet Access.

    Extra help is found at Guru Hoov site for the DNS/DHCP.

    Best regards.
