seen various posts of IE8 opening slowly when using zonealarm free, but nothing for same slow-down on IE7. am using XP+SP3 (updated), have just ZA Free 044, my a/v and the printer spool driver in start up (needed or not?). when i turn off ZA free, the internet homepage opens quickly. when ZA free is active, internet home page takes around 3 minutes to open. dont use IE8 and had same 'new network' problem as others with ZA 057, so uninstalled it, cleaned and installed 044 again. any solution known or advice available, please?

TIA
