I have using ZoneAlarm for the last 5 years… I currently work with Zone Alarm Extreme Security (13.0.208.000).
For the past few month I have notice that my computer crawl when I downloading from the internet, this is mostly happens when downloading Torrents and sometimes when I watch HD clips in YouTube.
Researching the problem I did few things –
- I tried that with Windows 7 and with Windows 8.1, same result.
- Monitoring the Task Manager when downloading I notice that uTorrent and the download manager (Akamai) I was using was not listed as the bandwidth consumer, instead the TrueVector Service was the consumer for the combine bandwidth. So shutting down Zone Alarm and… the computer is fast again. Also now uTorrent and Akamai is listed for the bandwidth consumer.
So, what should I do?
I love Zone Alarm and don’t want to switch, what I need to configure so Zone Alarm stop slow down my computer?
here are the screenshot from the task manager-
