I have been running an older version of ZA for years... on a now-old system running XP-pro. I upgraded to current version of ZA, and performance when completely in the toilet... computer was virtually unusable as the CPU was constantly busy running ZA. I tried turning of various options, turning off logging, it was still so bad I un-installed ZA completely.

I feel 'unprotected', but cannot handle the resource requirements of ZA.... unless someone has some really good tips on config that might (significantly) reduce the cpu usage?
