    "WARNING:Anti-humans program"

    March 6, 2012  |   By why-bother


    nothing at all


    my system is windows XP SP3
    1-after booting the pc it works fine until my pc is idle then it hogs all system resources (search google for vsmon.exe)
    2-when described my problem to zonealarm forums ,the employee and the fanboys started attacking me and blaming the problem on my pc and ignoring the real issue which a very big percent of users suffer from .
    3-the features which were the real reason for this product to be the best product in firewall apps is now removed due to ignorance of the company .
    4-Not user friendly at all ,it took me like half an hour to just prevent one certain program from accessing the internet .


    I've been very loyal to ZoneAlarm and i always advised my friends to use it but now i've lost my faith in this product .I think its true that "Nothing last forever" .If you want to suffer then be my guest and install this software ,but remember you will blame yourself after that .
