My question is simple, but I must describe the circumstance.
I updated the Zone Alarm antivirus and spyware database on Thursday, July 8. That is the only thing I did on my computer from outside. No other updates, no upgrades, no installations. (There were no updates for my XP this week.)
Prior to the update on July 8, I had often used Nero to Make Data DVDs. For a full disk, it takes 20 minutes; not on the internet and nothing else running. After July 8, these same routine Make Data DVDs have taken 2 hour 33 minutes or more; no internet and nothing else running.
The reason I am writing to this forum is that updating the Zone Alarm database is the only thing that I did. It is easy for me to wonder if something in the database is causing this problem. How do I solve it?
Thank you for your help. I will respond promptly to request for further information.
