    Default ZES slows start up and shut down?

    I had to post this because the other post that was posted was ZoneAlarm version 8 and the topic was closed.

    I have version ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version:
    My question is, since my version is ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version:, does the same rule apply to my version as does version 8?
    IMHO, I don't mind waiting a few minutes for the computer to start up, but if it can start up faster to desktop, that would be better.
    Respectively, my browsers load about the same time same as it did before I installed ZoneAlarm Extreme Security. The only significant difference is the start up time (boot time) to desktop. Would appreciate some feedback on this topic, thank you.

    Broadly yes, same rules as for version 8. As suggested here.

    Slow boot and/or shutdown can depend on many different factors, including how clean is your system and registry. The number of applications running at boot. The available RAM for applications.

    A simple test (same as for version 8) you can run to see how far a cleaner system (more ram, less applications running) can influence the boot and shutdown times is by booting XP selectively:

    1.) Click Start -> Run
    2.) Type MSConfig in the run box and click OK
    3.) Once in MSConfig, click the Startup Tab
    4.) Remove the checks from everything except ZLClient
    5.) Click the Services Tab
    6.) Place a check in "Hide All Microsoft Services"
    7.) Now remove checks from everything other than TrueVector Internet
    Monitor and ForceField (if present), and click OK.
    8.) Restart your computer

    How does it work?

    NOTE: You can place your computer back into a normal startup process by
    going back into msconfig and choosing the Normal Startup option on the
    General tab.
