I have upgraded to ZA Free 9.1.007.002 on WinXP, SP3, and often during startup it will excessive access the hard drive for several minutes before settling down. I have used DiskAction 2 to verify that it is zlclient.exe causing all the disk thrashing. I did uninstall, use the removal tool and then reinstall and that has not solved my problem. The program and firewall logs do not show activity related to startup.
What is the normal behavior for ZA Free 9? Should it be heavily accessing the hard drive for several minutes at startup, or is this unexpected? I did not have that problem with the previous version (ZA 7) that I had installed.
