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?
