I have installed ZA firewall only, as I use Avast for on access scanning.
I have noticed that since installing the system has slowed up quite considerably.
On checking the system loads with Process Explorer I see that ZL client exe. is active continuously and accounts for about a 15-20% CPU load. This continuous load has a detrimental effect upon overall system performance.
I would like to now if this is normal and if not what can I do to reduce it.
Previously used Comdo firewall but got feed up with all the interruptions and lockouts so I am looking to ZA in the hopes of being able to improve on this.
System winxp-sp3- home, IE 7/FF
Would be grateful for any help and advise.
Thank you for reading this.
