I upgraded from ZIS to ZES about 4 months ago. I am using
ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version 9.1.008.000
TrueVector security engine version 9.1.008.000
Driver Version 9.1.008.000
Anti-virus/Anti-spyware engine version 188.8.131.52, DAT file version 1019623648
AntiSpam version 184.108.40.2063
ZoneAlarm ForceField 220.127.116.11
I am running Windows XP with SP3 and have 512 MB of RAM.
ZIS was fine, but ZES is a nightmare. It has really bogged the machine
down and, at times, it takes a minute even to open a simple folder.
But the most irritating thing is the updates running all the time even
though I have set it to update once in 24 hours. When the update is
running, I cannot do a thing ... and it takes about 15 min to run.
This means I can only work in 15 min intervals!
Further, the updates run only when I am working!! They never seem
to run when the machine is sitting down idle.
Further, why should updates take that long on a broadband connection?
I have seen this same complaint made a few years back in archives.
But, no solution was posted anywhere.
Is there any way around this? I am pretty close to calling it quits
as everything takes almost twice as long as it should.
