I am using a registered copy of ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:9.1.008.000, Win XP, sp3.
I am having slow browser problems. At first I thought my ISP was having problems but I doubt that now because it's been for a couple of weeks.
I am convinced it's forcefield because when I go to a website I can see it go to other intermediary websites first on the bottom left url indicator. Maybe that always happens but the browser used to be so fast I didn't notice. At any rate that worries me.
I disabled all web protection by clicking Settings/advanced but it didn't change a thing. I'm not sure forcefield turned off by doing this.
Same problem in both IE and Firefox so it's not browser dependent.
If forcefield is monitoring everything coming to me, is it safe to assume that they monitor everything I do on the web? If so isn't that a serious privacy problem?
One more question: If I reinstall ZA without the toolbar does that prevent forcefield from installing?
I'm starting to think that forcefield is one extra problem I don't need.
