Laptop excessively slow since upgrading firewall

  lindy 18:48 22 Oct 2005


I've recently upgraded my firewall [Zero Freedom]but since then my laptop is extremely!!!!!!! slow not just on the net but on loading programs etc too. I think it may be using memory but I don't know how to stopit from doing that. Is there any suggestions or maybe alternative views as to why the laptop would be running so slowly.

Appreciate any help.

You haven't, by any chance, running both the Windows and Zero Freedom (if you have XP) at the same time?

Should read:

You haven't, by any chance, been running.....

Thanks Stuartli

No I'm not that unaware of how the computer works - dI haven't got Winfows Firewall on at all - I don't like it. However I have taken DieSsi suggestion and downloaded Sysgate and so far it's terrific. Thanks to all for your help - I don't suppose you know of a good free Spam blocker do you?
