Windows XP Home SP 2
I just upgraded ZAISS to 8.0.059.
After the ZAISS upgrade, most things on my computer are now slow. When Web browsing, not only is it slow, but many web pages do not load and I instead get a message saying it could not load the page. When I click 'retry', the page usually loads. That has happened on sites such as Yahoo and the ZA forum itself. When sending emails, I often get a message that the smtp server is unavailable.
It isn't clear to me whether I should have installed Windows XP SP 3 before upgrading ZAISS to 8.0.059. The system requirements state that I need "XP Service Packs 2 and 3". Does that mean ZAISS will support SP 2? Or does it mean I must have SP 3? If so, stating "2 and 3" is confusing because of course you can't have 3 without 2 (or 1).
Should I uninstall ZAISS 8.0.059 and go back to 7.0.483? I saw that recommendation on this forum, but in connection with 8.0.020, so I don't know if the recommendation still stands for 8.0.059.
If I install SP 3, will I then be able to install 8.0.059 and not have the slowness issues?
