    Lightbulb vsmon.exe + Basic Firewall On/Off >adding more RAM will certainly help

    question 1.
    The 'Program Learning phase' has been finished (as described here), and vsmon.exe consumes 40% of CPU (by Process Explorer from Sysinternals) at 2Mbit/s download. Is this normal?

    (the system:
    Pentium III Tualatin 1.33 GHz, 1.25 GB RAM
    modem/router Huawei EchoLife HG520i
    Windows XP SP3
    ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 11.0.000.038
    avast! antivirus, no other real-time security service
    )

    question 2.
    If my computer is behind a hardware firewall, can I turn Basic Firewall of ZA Off? Can it cause any negative effects?

    The main question of this thread:
    question 3.
    Situation: Basic Firewall and Application Control (parts of ZA) are On, no download is running, vsmon.exe consumes 0% of CPU.
    Then Firefox (in Application Control a Super Trusted application) starts a download, vsmon.exe starts to consume CPU.
    Then I turn Basic Firewall Off, but it doesn't decrease the CPU consumption of vsmon.exe.
    But why? I expected Application Control wouldn't monitor details of the net traffic, especially for Super trusted applications...
