    Default Zonealarm 10.2.078 caused my PC to boot very slowly

    Since upgrading to Zonealarm 10.2.078 my PC takes ages to boot up.
    After I switch it on, it sits there for 7 miniutues with a black screen and a flashing cursor before it even gets to the first Windows logo.
    Once it has booted up and I'm logged on, it all works fine but why does it take so long to boot?

    Anyone any ideas on how to fix it?

    Windows XP
    PENTIUM D 930 (3.0GHZ)

    Probably a bad upgrade. First you need to remove ZA from XP add/remove programs, then run the ZA removal tool and after install ZA again clean.

    If you will provide more details on the exact version of ZAfree used (right click the ZA icon near the clock, about, copy to cliboard, paste it in a reply), the exact version you have been used, the exact version of XP used, the other security tools installed on the system then I could try to be more specific.

    More information you provide more likely other users here will be also able to help.

    It could be also an issue of incompatibility with other software running on the system. To test it do the following:

    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 zatray and forcefield
    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, and click OK.
    8.) Restart your computer

    How does it work? Still slow? If not, you have something conflicting with ZA.

    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.
