When I upgraded my ZoneAlarm firewall to 9.2.044 a message displayed indicated that invoking IE8 might be slow for a little while until ZA gets the settings in place. It's been 4 days now and I invoke IE quite often but the speed of bringing it up is still way too slow - unacceptably slow. I never had this with other ZA versions. What gives? I'm running Windows XP SP3.

Can anything be done or must I move on to some other brand of firewall?
