This isn't on my computer, but my parent's computer (yet again), that's having problems. Basicly, ever since yesterday vsmon.exe (Zone Alarm's workhorse process) has been freaking out by sucking up all the CPU's time. The strange thing is, this only happens when you dial-out. Until you do so, everything's fine; no hint of trouble. But about 10 seconds after the connection gets established, it jumps out of control. While it's out of control it won't respond to the commanded shutdown (through zlclient.exe), and any program that then tries to access the net get's frozen (I'm assuming the programs get blocked automaticly, then stay frozen until ZA can process the request, but in this case, it's too busy doing nothing and killing the CPU). Disconnecting doesn't do anything either, long after the system is disconnected it's still going strong. And the computer has a hard time shutting down while it's doing this (duh). Have any of you ever seen this problem before? Know how to fix it?
