Hi People,

This is my first post and this is my current version.

ZoneAlarm Pro version:6.5.737.000
TrueVector version:6.5.737.000
Driver version:6.5.737.000

When I download a video or any file in Firefox my PC cpu usage shoots up to 100% until the file is finished downloading. If the file is a graphic it is pretty quick to download or if it's a 50 meg video file it takes about a minute maybe.

During the download EVERYTHING on my PC is VERY slow. I can not watch a video or browse pictures or open a new folder etc.

If I shut down ZoneAlarm everything works fine.

This was not a problem with Firefox 1.5 (I don't think) but then again it might not have to do with Firefox at all. When I am downloading with IE6 things are slightly better but still very slow.

I set the settings likebelow as someone on here suggested but NO difference.


trusted access - checkmark
internet access - checkmark
trusted server - ?
internet server - ? or X

Some people will need generic host (svchost.exe) set this way:
trusted access - checkmark
internet access - checkmark
trusted server - checkmark or ? (some people have connectivity problem with a ?, others don't)
internet server - ? or X

Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong?
