I am running Windows XP SP2 and had ZoneAlarm Pro 6.1 installed and running fine. I upgraded to ZoneAlarm Pro 7.0 and my system came to a crawl. I noticed in TASK MANAGER that VSMON.EXE and ZLCLIENT.EXE were each running with a CPU USAGE of 98% to 100% combined. I couldn't even remove Zone Alarm
via ADD/REMOVE. I did a
restart which took the better part of
15 minutes and removed it in SAFE MODE. The PC continued to run fine without ZA installed. I reinstalled it after cleaning the registry of all loose pieces left behind and after installing it again the same symptons returned. It ran so slow it never finished building the ZA window, just the outline and always came up busy when I moved the cursor into the frame. It's almost impossible to start any other application. Anyone else have this performance hit?
