Hi guys,
2 days ago I began getting these constan Zone Alarm alerts about every program on my computer, eg: (programname) is trying to communicate with C:\WINDOWS\System32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exe by opening a thread. If i click allow or deny (iv tried both) the alerts continue to appear continously, even when i press remember my selection.
ever since these alerts began to appear my computer has been amazingly slow, crashes trying to open a webpage or even iTunes, and has problems opening task manager (it took 45 mins before).
Also, the computer seems to be shutting programs down on its own, and yesterday closed all programs and shut down the computer.
I don't know what to do, i have run avg and it can only find tracking cookies and nothing else.

Any help would be appreciated :thumbsup:
