I just installed a new version of Zone Alarm (Virus scan) along with Force Field (got two malwares in the last 4 days - had to get serious about protecting myself!) about two hours ago and ever since I finished installing them, something was been working the Internet like mad. I haven't seen the ZA logo, just it flickering that something's chit-chatting away online.
I tried to chat with tech support, but I think I know more about ZA than that guy did so here I am...
Has anyone else experienced this?
I've had ZA for years and it never did this unless some program was downloading something, etc. and then it would go back to the ZA logo. This has been going full speed for 2-1/2 hours! Even while the browser window was closed. It's hogging all my resources so everything is crawling which is making me nuts!!
I even tried rebooting hoping that would interrupt whatever's going on but in went right back at it.
I ran a malware remover and another virus scan last night so my computer should be cootie-free now.
