vsmon is locking up my computer even though Task Manager shows it is only using 10-20% of CPU time.Running on XP SP2, 2.8G Pentium D, 1G ram, ZASS ver 7.0.470.000
Each time I try to start a new application vsmon grabs control and will not let anything else run unless it is allready running on the desktop (not minimized on the task bar).
It doesn't even let the screen update to release the "button" (eg "start" that was "pressed".
Looking at TaskMgr, there is a jump in activity to 10-20% for about 85 secs followed by a drop to near zero for about 3 secs and then another cycle of 10-20% for about 85 secs.
Net result is a three minute wait to do anything.
TaskMgr shows huge I/O read for vsmon - currently about 180 GB - about twice the used space on my C: drive.
I have turned off on-access-scanning, but it appears that vsmon is scanning continuously even though not scheduled for a month.
This is worse than any virus I have ever seen - what can I do?
