    Default 80% drop in download speed

    I have recently installed
    ZoneAlarm Free edition
    (previously using McAfee Security Suite).

    I notice that the download rate (say from has dropped drastically... by almost 80% from the original speed that I used to notice.

    I checked with my ISP and noticed that my network bandwidth and speed is still the same. Could
    ZoneAlarm be causing this delay during download? If so, any way to correct this? I notice that when the download is in progress, there is continuous activity shown in the ZA Tray icon.

    I am on Windows XP with SP2.

    Thanks & Regards.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    If you have the same
    option in ZoneAlarm (Free) that is available in the Security Suite ("Load ZoneAlarm ... at startup&quot, then uncheck it, reboot, then run the download test again and see if the speed is faster (back to normal).
