Can someone help me understand why vsmon.exe is consuming 98% of my CPU?
This just started the other day.
vsmon.exe seems to get worse as the computer stays up ... using up to 50MB of memory and making the computer essentially non-responsive.
The problem goes away after shutting down ZA (which did just for test).
Thankfully, I have router with NAT/SPI.
I want the ZA suite protection.
I did not
notice anything peculiar in the ZA Log Viewer
for Programs trying to access the Internet ... that might have perhaps being blocked by ZA repeatedly (e.g. high count).
I try to stay up to date on all ZA updates ... as well as all High-Priority Windows Updates.
I uninstalled ZA and reinstalled to see if would help ... still same problems.
I've also removed some services that I wasn't using such as MS SQL stuff that installed with MS Visual Studio 2005.
Sorry if not giving enough information.
I can provide a HighjackThis log if it would be meaningful.
I'm somewhat of a
novice ZA user
... so any information
