I have Zone Alarm Free, which I have used for many, many years. It's a great program, and if I could afford it, I'd but the better version. However, recently, my computer has been so slow, and giving me virtual memory errors. Not only that, but my internet has been sporadic, and periodically my up and down streams hit zero for periods of time no matter what links I click. Mysteriously it begins to work again.
I have scanned my computer with Adaware, and AVG Free, and NOTHING comes up for either. I really think there is something wrong, but everything tells me I am adware and virus free!!
My problem is this: On startup, ZoneAlarm will pop up a dialog box that tells me it is "Initializing". I am able to use the internet during this time, but the dialog box will sometimes pop up once a minute for a long time! Like ZoneAlarm is unable to do what it needs to do to protect my computer! Coupled with everything else, this is alarming! Please help!
