    Default Slow Windows Vista startup

    I run a fresh install of windows vista ultimate (32 bit) with bitdefnder antivirus 2008.

    After installing zone alarm 71_251_000_de the startup of vista needs about 6 minutes.

    After typing in my password i can see the vista desktop very fast but i cant do anything (mousclicks are ignored) because zonealarm does not load in the system tray (bitdefnder antivirus 2008 is already running). After ZA is loaded all mousclicks i made are completed.

    If i deinstall zonealarm vista starts in 2 minutes.

    How to fix this?



    Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate
    Software Version: 7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name: ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Like you i am running vista ultimate 32 bit since i started using zone internet security suite my machine ran like a monster.i've tried a lot of security software but i have'nt been this satisfied.Try running one at a time for you to assess which caused your headaches.Truly zonealarm is not just
    for security but it makes your machine run at its best.

    Sorry, but this does not help.

    My computer ran fine before i isntalled zonealarm. When i deinstall it it works again.

    I want to use firewall and antivirus so i have to install both softwares.

    At this time i cant use zonealarm because it slows down the start of my computer.

    Both softwares run fine if they are used standalone but thats not the solution of my problem.

    Hi!
    may be you can report the issue also to antivirus developers.
    They could workaround the issue.

    Is the antivirus coming also with a firewall or installing a proxy to filter traffic?
    It could be the problem...

    No, its just an antivirus software without firewall.

    Only POP3 Data is scanned but this doesn
    t happen when vista starts because mail client is closed at this time.
