I downloaded and performed a clean install of the latest ZoneAlarm Security Suite update that addresses the internet access problem caused by a recent Microsoft patch.
Right after installing this update, my ZoneAlarm has become ridiculously sluggish. It doesn't seem to slow the rest of the system down. All other applications (and Windows) function as normal.
But when I try to open the Security Center, it takes 15-30 minutes to stop "thinking" and be useable. Every subsequent click responds very slowly and takes several minutes to process. Even just moving to another tab. And it's not just when I open it. When I switch away from it in Windows and try to return to it, it takes 15-30 minutes to access it again.
It's not running any sort of scan. I haven't installed anything else in at least a month. Anyone have any idea what might be going on and how I might solve this problem? Thanks.
