Something's wrong with my Zone Alarm. Once in a while, I notice my internet's going at a painfully slow speed. So I turn off Zone Alarm, and everything goes back to normal. In fact, it's happening right now. I've got Zone Alarm turned off because it's causing my internet to go extremely slow.

Does anyone know why it's doing this and how to fix it?

If you are using the free version, my suggestion would be to turn on the WIN XP Firewall, unistall ZoneAlarm, install one of the other free software firewalls, then disable the WinXP Firewall. How are you connected? Are you using a router?


The most important thing to keep in mind, regardless of which anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware and firewall you use ( http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/default.mspx ) is to keep it UPDATED, just as it is important to make sure you have all windows critical and security updates. + =
