    Default ZA makes it slow.

    I have ZA security suite all that stuff. I paid for it. But whenever I start my computer/switch user/or restart my computer it's extremely slow. It takes about 5-10 to load the screen where I can clik the name of the users of this computer. When I start my computer, I clik on my user name, ZA blocks everything I cannot even click on the start button and it takes about 5 minutes to let me click on something. Before I buy ZA it wasnt like that, well I had ZA vut after a certain patch ( I don't remember wich ) it started to do this. After ZA is '' loaded'' ( its not loading during 5 mins I guess... ) everything works fine. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    You also have to remember that the suite has av within it and it loads and scans startup items thus slowing down your boot time considerably,also boot times sometimes can be faster if you have more memory then the basic that came with the computer and your hard drive is big and defragged,I would also follow the advice of Findley and try upgrading to see if it improves.
