Suddenly today I cannot get to the Zone Alarm Pro program from the system tray notification area or by trying to restart zlclient.exe. This is on a Windows XP Pro SP2 + all Windows updates.
The TrueVector Service vsmon.exe is running -- and taking on the order of 35% - 50% of CPU time! And zlclient.exe is running, but there's no icon for it in the system tray notification area. so I cannot get to the program's interface.
If I kill zlclient.exe and then restart it, the same thing continues to happen.
I even tried using Task Manager to kill vsmon.exe and zlclient.exe, and then restarted zlclient.exe, which in turn restarts vsmon.exe. Still, no Zone Alarm Pro accessible from the system tray (and hence not accessible to me as administrator user).
I tried rebooting, but this did not fix things.
