I recently installed Windows XP Professional SP2 on my computer and updated it to SP3 to avoid downloading countless other patches. I installed AVG, ZoneAlarm, and Threatfire and it ran fine for about a day, then it stopped booting properly. The system would freeze up at the desktop during bootup and requred a hard restart. I booted into safemode and uninstalled ZoneAlarm and Threatfire thinking the cause of the lockups was being caused by one of these 2 programs.
Can anyone here please respond if they are running either Threatfire or ZoneAlarm (or both) under XP SP3? I'm trying to figure out which program is at fault.
SP3 came out on May 6th, so its still very new, and incompatabilities may not have been found yet.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
