It was found that some COMBINATIONS of software do that. Zone Alarm on it's own is usually only a few seconds more but if you follow the VS&A discussions they found a TOXIC combo where 2 protection suites knocked heads. Since no other software is noted I can only share this.
I have a pentium 4 2 Ghz processor, 512 MB RAM & Windows XP SP 2.
Well everything was fine before i installed this "Zonealarm internet security suite" after which the system has gone awry.The startup takes an extra 2 mins longer than what it used to.On my part i have unchecked most of the other programs on startup and have also put zonealarm under selective startup.No significant improvement was there.
I had no problem like this with the free zonealarm firewall.
Is this worth the wait or shall i uninstall this straightaway??
Someone please help me out of this.
