A few days ago, I posted here because after installing the trial version of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite, Windows Explorer crashed during startup, and every other application crashed with a memory exception when started.
The cause was suggested as the Logitech QuickCam software that was installed on my PC, and after uninstalling this ZASS did seem to run just fine - for a few hours.
I started a full scan with maximum options, and about 2 hours into the scan, although everything had been working OK up to that point, Windows Explorer crashed, and every application crashed with a memory exception again when started.
I have uninstalled and and reinstalled ZASS numerous times, uninstalled every single application that I don't use on a daily basis, and still ZASS kills my machine. In fact, ZASS has caused me more problems in a few hours than viruses have in over 20 years.
What I can't understand is how ZASS always gets rave reviews, and why these problems aren't experienced by reviewers.
Am I just very unlucky, or more likely, is there a fundamental flaw in ZASS that isn't being reported?
If somebody can tell me what I need to do to get this working (without having to re-engineer my PC), then I'll give it another shot, otherwise I'm taking my business elsewhere.
