    Default Ebay Way Way Slow After Zone Alarm Install

    I have a fast cable connection. I can surf through other websites with no problem. But when it comes to Ebay, everything I try to do is super super slow. If I turn off Zone Alarm completely, Ebay's as fast as ever. I must have Z/A set to not like Ebay. Why is Ebay so slow? Can anyone help me understand how to manage Z/A so that Ebay is its normal self? Hint: I have Cookie Control and Ad Blocking on Medium in the Privacy Settings. And I have Internet Zone Security and Trusted Zone Security on Medium on the Firewall. Thanks, John

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    With ebay, you may have to 'allow' all cookies and ads
    /
    Under custom settings, make sure that "Banner/skyscraper ads" is UNCHECKED
    .
    Common problem settings, sometimes some sites will not load properly and quickly without those cookies and ads also loading - any preventions slows down the whole process. Here is a
    general search of past posts - take a quick browse thru a couple of them to get some
    insights -

    . Last resort, would be to turn 'off' Privacy Protection - in entirety - but just for eBay - but see/try
    the next link below first.

Trusted Zone is always at Medium.<hr>NaiveMelody NYC 11-1-07 - For The Love Of Money - The O' Jays

    I've done everything that was suggested and still Ebay runs extremely slowly (5 to 10 minutes to go from one page to the next).
    And this is with a fast broadband connection!
    I am a heavy user of Ebay.
    I need to be able to navigate quickly through the site.
    The only way I can is by shutting down Zone Alarm.
    Any other suggestions?

    <hr>1- Please try this, temporarily,
    putting your ZA's Firewall &gt; Main &gt; Internet Zone Security - change from High to Medium does the trick. &lt;&lt;&lt;
    [ by the way - &quot;Trusted Zone Security&quot; should always be set at &quot;Medium&quot; - it's only Internet Zone Security that normally needs to left on 'High.']2 - Sometimes it's temporarily shutting off the anti-virus portion(only) .3 - Shut off all 'Privacy Protection' on main tab. No cookie/ ad blocker settings on4 - what other security software do you have?? SpySweeper, SpywareDoctor, etc. and list performance monitors, spam/pop-up blocking software, back-up utilities, etc. Please list all.<hr>Have you done this - this may help -<hr>Creating an online fraud protection profile<a target="_blank"></a>
