I just recently got ZAP (zone alarm pro). I used to be a free user and it worked great for me for 2 years so i decided to get the pro version. It is alot better than the free version but i have alot of problems with ZAP. Sometimes it'll just "preform an illegal operation" and close. like itll be working normally, then poof, its done something illegal and have to close. I also want ZAP to start when i boot up my computer. so one day i power up my machine and i don't see ZAP in the taskbar(the little bar where the clock is). so i click the desktop icon. still, it doesn't go into the taskbar. whatever. I try opening IE6 and it says it can't connect to the internet to find the web site. I think that's odd. So i try to log on AIM. it says "service cannot be reached". *now i pay $50 a month on 2megabit cable so i was steaming pissed at road runner and blew my steam at some poor road-runner telephone-operator* the only way i got to fix this problem was to reboot my computer and wait 4 or 5 minutes until i see ZAP in the taskbar. I still have to wait 4-or-5 minutes when i reboot my computer till ZAP starts. Anyone know how to make this quicker? the free version of ZAP started really fast. Now for my memory hogger, kazaa. My comp would freeze for minutes when i had kazaa 1.7.1 open. I got really pissed at this because, after all, 512ram is alot. I fixed this by going and downloading kazaa lite 1.7.2. it's still kind of slow, but it only lags for seconds instead of minutes.
