    Default vsmon.exe is ruining my video watching experience

    Quite often when watching a video (I use VLC Media Player), things will start pausing or getting jittery and I'll check Task Manager and vsmon.exe is jumping all over the place in terms of CPU usage, often spiking up to 70% usage.

    If I kill ZoneAlarm (never like to do that) then my video plays just fine.

    Is there any way I can set ZoneAlarm into "calm" mode? Just so that it doesn't do any full disk virus scanning, or other non-essential CPU activities?

    I like "Game Mode". How about a "Movie Mode"? This would put ZoneAlarm into a low CPU usage mode for a period of time, telling it to delay things like full system virus scans or downloads of new virus/spyware definitions until I was done watching my movie/s.

    Is there already something like this available?

    Thanks!

    Hmm... does no one else experience this?

    Am I the only one who would like a feature like this?

    Ah well. Guess that won't be high on the priority list. :-)

    Yeah, it's chewing up my CPU time, too. I'd like to know what it's function is and is it necessary.

    This thread is a repeat of another thread on same subject.

    Also no facts about issue. Versions, ZA?, video formats and so on.

    Could not even begin to help becasue ZERO info was given to recreate the issue.

    Closing thread.
