    Default Upload and vsmon problem (memory & cpu max usage)

    When I upload a file using Internet Explorer 6/7 or FireFox 2, I noticed that vsmon.exe will first start gaining memory usage pretty fast. After a few seconds the CPU usage will start increasing.

    At the end, the usage is stuck at 99% which pretty much bogs down my computer to death.

    Is there any solution for this problem? This seems to effect all my computers.

    I'm using:
    Windows XP Professional
    Latest ZoneAlarm Free Version [ZoneAlarm/TrueVector/Driver] (7.0.302.000)
    FireFox 2.0
    Internet Explorer 6
    Norton Systemworks 2003 (Antivirus)

    Windows XP Home
    Latest ZoneAlarm Free Version [ZoneAlarm/TrueVector/Driver] (7.0.302.000)
    FireFox 2.0
    Internet Explorer 6
    AVG Antivirus


    Files Attempted to Upload:
    Video Files (78MB and 101MB)

    Location for upload:
    YouTube
    FileFront

    Operating System: Windows XP Pro
    Product Name: ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version: 7.0


    UPDATE #1:
    I had to do a minor workaround for my computer. Since I am on cable internet (Roadrunner) and behind a Wireless Router (but not using wireless though), I believe I am safe temporary with ZoneAlarm is turned off while I upload my files to FileFront and YouTube (plus I also have Norton Internet Worm Protection as "ON" which Microsoft Security Center sees it as a "firewall". So I assume it is safe to have it off temporary while I upload and such.

    Regardless I would like a better solution than turning off ZoneAlarm every time I want to upload a file.


    UPDATE #2:
    I tried uploading via Yousendit.com and it is NOT effected at all (vsmon.exe was at 10% cpu usage or less the whole update)! Could the problem lies with ZoneAlarm with not being compatible or having problems with special upload features that YouTube and FileFront uses (I think they use Flash or something).

    I hope this latest information will help you figure out a solution.

    I'm having the exact same problem as well. Every time I upload a big file the system basically crashes (cpu usage 99%). If I physically disconnect the computer from the internet (pull out the network cable) vsmon.exe cpu usage goes back to normal within seconds.
