I was wondering if anyone on the forum is running a Windows Home Server (WHS) on their network and has installed the WHS connector software on their computer with Zone-Alarm? If so, are you experiencing any slow bootup issues when starting into Windows?
I have noticed that when I have WHS connector software and Zone Alarm free (version 7.0.483.000@) installed it will cause Windows (XP) to startup really slow (about 2-3 mins before it actually loads a desktop with the taskbar). My normal startup without either WHS connector software or Zone Alarm installed, Windows starts-up relatively fast about 30 seconds.
I have checked the registry value - HK_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ WaitToKillServiceTimeout and it is set to 20000.
I have also tried installing the latest version of Zone Alarm and this does not improve on startup.
Any advice would be great.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
