ZoneAlarm has been installed on my WinXP Media Center PC for a long time, and usually works fine.
I am running ZA version 6.5.737.000, and Windows XP Media Center 2005 with SP2 and all current MS updates.
ZoneAlarm alerts me to requests and problems just like you would expect it to, but when I click on the Program Control button in the ZoneAlarm Control Center, that window freezes and can't be shutdown or otherwise accessed.
The processes VSMON and ZLCLIENT go from using 18 - 24% and 1 - 3% of CPU respectively before clicking on the Program Control button to 24 - 32% and 38 - 41% of CPU after hitting the button.
The firewall still works even after this happens, giving me an alert when I tell a program that I have previously restricted from Internet access to try to get an update, so whatever the problem is seems to be somewhat isolated.
I have scanned lots of threads on the boards about "freezes" but nothing seems to fit my particular situation.
Anybody got any ideas?
Thanks in adance.
