    Default 9.1.603.000 issues --> Slow IE8

    I run XP SP3 and had several problems that forum users described with 9.1.507.000. I waited a week after the release of 9.1.603.000 to see how things were going for other forum members. The latest version fixed every other problem that I experienced with the prior version EXCEPT IE8 still opens as slow as molasses (15+ seconds) and delays in opening each web page. Yet Firefox opens quickly (2-3 seconds) and responds quickly.

    ~~snip~~ My installation is about as standard as you can get ... DELL XPS with XP SP3 and MS Office Pro. ~~snip~~

    ~~snip~~ It is VERY OBVIOUS that something is amiss with ZA and IE8. As everyone else said, I had absolutely no problems with

    Which ZA product are you running? I am running ZA Internet Security Suite (ZASS) but the previous version. Please paste your version info, like this:

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:
    TrueVector version:
    Driver version:
    Anti-virus engine version:
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:1020107488
    AntiSpam version:

    I also do not have the ZA toolbar installed (do you?) or the standalone version of ForceField (do you?)

    I have appended the version of ZASS that I have installed below.


    Version 9.1.603.000 fixed my Event Viewer crypt32 problem and the slow opening of MS Office apps (I assume the apps need some sort of Internet access). This version did not fix my slow opening IE8 or the subsequent tabs (web pages). It may be faster than version 9.1.507.000 ... I am not sure ... but it is definitely not as fast as the version you are using I am puzzled why Firefox opens as fast as IE8 used to with both versions 9.1.507.000 and 9.1.603.000.

    I have also noticed the constant hard disk activity that some other threads mention. It may have been there in the past ... I am not sure. I suspect ZASS ... why ... because if I "turn off" ZASS the hard disk thrashing goes away. I agree ... circumstantial ... not proof. When I get some free time I need to run a program like SysInternals Process Monitor to see what the offending program(s) is/are.


    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:9.1.603.000
    TrueVector Security Engine version:9.1.603.000
    Driver version:9.1.522.000
    Anti-virus/Anti-spyware engine version:
    DAT file version:1020105440
    AntiSpam version:

    The HDD activity was 100% fixed. We tested this on many system at ZA that had the issue and this version fixed every system internally and we also distributed this fix to a good number of users who had the issue and they also reported it fixed the issue.

    You may have an issue that isolated just with your PC and HDD activity and SysInternlas will not pin point the issue.

    You need a file/folder activity monitoring program.

    The issues will appear with logs being writing over and over in the Internet Logs folder only. That is the issue we created in the previous version.

    I would suggest downloading and installing a program called Disk Pulse.
