    Default CPU usage pins at 100% with zone alarm pro

    I have a sempron 3100+ cpu that when zone alarm is enabled and I connect to the internet it goes to 100% usage.At that point zone alarm doesn't work properly,it just kind of takes forever for something to open.Also I'll get off the internet and the 100% usage remains while zone alarm runs at a snails pace to do anything.Do you have any idea what's going on.

    Thanks, Quark

    this was happening to me as well, after upgrading to the latest zonealarm security suite. it got to the point that I could not stand it anymore. followed several post having 100% CPU usage. it helped somewhat, but then returned after several shut downs and restarts. I had so much **bleep** on my hard drive I decided to reformat the system drive. Everything was looking good after a fresh reinstall of windows XP. Then, I reinstalled ZA. next day after restarting the computer, the 100% CPU usage was back...Arghhhh!!! This cannot be any bug on the computer after a fresh install of the OS and ZA.

    Additionally, I have also noticed a trend. the 100% CPU usage re-occurs after every other shut down and restart. the main culprits in the Task Manager are svchost, zclient, vsmon, and system(occasianally).

    Can anyone shine some light onto this problem?
