    Default Noticable slowdown in XP shutdown process since upgrade to zonealarm 8.0.298.000

    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
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Try this:
    Disable Text To Speech
    Navigate to:START/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/Languages Tab/Details Button/Advanced Button/ -then
    Enable: Turn off advanced text services
    Click Apply and OK on All the Windows
    Shutdown the Computer
    Restart the Computer
    Reboot an Few Times
    If this does not work you will still notice System Speed Improvement because the Text to Speech Service
    will not be Caching Everything.

    I've now tried your suggestion but no difference in the speed of the shutdown process.

    what have zonelabs introduced since the last version that could cause this as the previous versions have always been trouble free?

    The Question is.. What have you Updated or added to your computer that may be conflicting with ZAFree, or using more Memory or CPU Resouces?How many other programs do you have stared or running in the backgrown when you boot the computer..Often many Free Anti-virus and Anti-Spyware programs add new features to their updates that may compete with or Conflict with ZA Firewall..

    Nothing,
    I've even rolled back to
    a prior install which was okay and upgraded nothing but ZA and bam instant slowdown.
