Good evening all,
I have had major problems with ZoneAlarm Pro following a previous update and the most recent update has not improved things. The problems seems to be that the PC takes several minutes to do anything including opening up a new page or window. As soon as you eventually close down ZoneAlarm the pc operates as normal. The PC is an HP make dual co-processor intel 2.66Mhz and 1G of memory.
I have now removed ZA completely and the PC is it's normal fast operation.
I have two other computers, a laptop and another PC on a local home hub and will be checking to see if they are effected in the same way.
I have carried out Norton, Ad-aware and Spybot scans and have found nothing of concern. I have now enabled Windows Defender and looking to purchase a hardware based firewall system - as I'm also looking to set up a home server etc.
So sorry ZA - you have lost a customer here.
All the best for the future
