Whats the problem w/zonealarm?

Ok I don't know much to suggest other than to

run an av scan,

spyware/adware scans (a few good ones to try are spybot search and destroy, ad-aware, spysweeper, pestpatrol, and bazooka scanner(though it is kinda more targeted to only find certain comp nasties),

try updating your firewall to see if there is a fix for the problem

I was having a problem where it would freeze my laptop to the point I had to physically shut it off and reboot, since I removed ZoneAlarm it hasnt locked up.

i used to have a problem with zonealarm freezing my pc with a BSOD...every single time. i decided to uninstall it completely for a while...i think i let like 3 weeks pass, and then i installed a new version, and the problem dissappeared. try finding an older version and running it...see if the problem persists. if it does, then u have some nasty spyware/malware/whatever-ware on the system...

what edition was it ?? if it was with antivirus or web filters then yes that is normal. What happens is it locks up while scanning, or blopping. It can't handle the multitasking operation.

The Zone Labs Forum has info about it ..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
