I have been using ZA for some years and it was fine until about a year ago, probably after one of the version 7 upgrades.
Now the performance of my PC has degraded to such an extent that I hardly use it (as I also have a laptop - which doesn't run ZA). It takes at least ten minutes to boot up and most of this is starting up ZA; when it is scanning I cannot use the PC for anything else and even when it isn't, all programs take an age to open up and are very slow, e.g. to switch between the main overview window of ZA and the product info window takes about 30 seconds.
Also, it no longer appears to remember settings although I always check the box, and constantly asks for confirmations.
I hoped the version 8 upgrade (I am now on 8.0.298.035) would fix the issues but it hasn't and before I give it up completely and uninstall ZA I thought I would just ask if perhaps there is something I ought to try first.
It IS an old PC, running windows XP SP3 on a Pentium 1.8 with 500Mb RAM, so maybe this is just as fast as it will go, but it was usable before!
Any advice gratefully received, thank you
