I have been noticing my internet connection speed getting progressively worse. The fire fox browser dropping out on time out repeatably. I run a download speed test with and without zone alarm and found the speed dropped of more than 50%. 3.78Mbs line and 473kbps dload verse 9.95mbs and 1.22mbs without zone alarm.

Is this a configuration issue with Zone alarm security suite ver 8.0.298.035?

Cheers greatly for any assistance
