I have installed the new ZoneAlarm2012 with antivirus and now I have problem running the MediaPlayerClassic-HomeCinema.
homepage of the program: hxxp://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net
It sometimes starts ok, but more often it hangs as an invisible process (the MPC-HC process started is visible in the TaskManager only). When this happens and I shut down the ZoneAlarm, the MPC-HC then appears immediately and it continues to work ok. Without ZA shutdown I have to kill it manually from the TaskManager.
Using the ProcessExplorer I have found, that during the "invisible stage" MPC-HC tries to read stuff from the Registry but at extremly slow speed (~ one regkey per 2 secs). Evidently there is some conflict between the new ZA and MPC-HC.
I have tried many different ZA settings (allowed all stuff for the MPC-HC, setting it to "super" etc...) but with no success. When I remove the MPC-HC record from the ZA-database, it always starts ok (for the 1st time under the ZA, then the problem is back).
I have no other problem with the new ZA.
