Been using the free firewall for last 18 months+ with never a problem until the recent upgrade to 8.0.298.000
Since then there is a noticable slowdown in the XP shutdown process.
Did a complete uninstall of zonealarm and fully cleaned up registry etc removed all traces of previous install and to pc back to just xp firewall and system shuts down in normal time.
Reinstalled the latest version of zonealarm and slow shutdown again
Time to kill value in registry is already at 20000.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
