    Default True Vector (vsmon) fails to start

    Zone alarm is failing at start up about 50% of the time. When I check the task manager zlclient is listed at 4580 mem usuage but that's where it stays until i quit the app. and manuallly open the progam. Yes, the vs.exe is running. I have Avast.exe as a virus scan and spybot for malware.
    xp sp 3 with 3 gigs of mem and i use mozilla browser.

    what can i do to fix this?

    Not very clear.... How is failing to start? You receive a message? What is VS.exe? Which version of ZA are you using? You need to be more specific and please do not attach yourself to very old posts. Its a good strategy to get ignored

    What you describe can depend on corruped ZA settings, conflicts with other tools and malware infections.... lets start from ZA....

    In case your ZA settings or files are corrupted you can experience the problems you are reporting. Try a reset and a reinstall if the reset does not fix the issue.

    1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after reboot

    Do not restore any previous backup and do not touch any defaults. See how it goes.... if the above fails than please try to fully remove ZA and reinstall: Remove the ZA with the ZA removal tool

    If the above fails then there is something more than ZA that you should take into consideration.

    Not to sure about which version of ZA you have, but I had this same problem with ZA 91.008 I had also Spybot S&D installed to........Spybot does not play nice with ZA....Uninstalled Spybot, and all went well after that with ZA.....Hope that's of some help to you
