    Angry VSMON.EXE High CPU Consumption

    From surfing the web it looks like VSMON.EXE consuming a high percentage of CPU for a period of time is a known behavior. I find it normally happens when I wake my system out of hibernation in the morning or have been away from it for several hours.

    I do not doubt the value that VSMON.EXE provides but Zonealarm is the only security system I've used that impacts users response time as much as I experience.

    Is there no configuration change that can be made so there are no prolonged peak (80-95%) CPU consumption.

    I'm running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 on a Dell Dimension E521 ; 1.8Ghz AMD single core with 2.5GB of memory.

    For vsmon and CPU issues please see here:

    ZoneAlarm is using a lot of CPU or memory resources
    Follow the indications there.

    Also you can search the forum for high CPU/vsmon there are several resolved post ranging from corrupted install, corrupted settings, conflicting third party software, etc.
