I am playing Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 online with broadband conection. I am using the free version of Zone Alarm and it slows the conection. is there any way of stopping it doing this as it is driving me MAD....
Hi, im running ZA free version with BB and same amout memory and it never slows down my conection i would have thought it was the server you were on or something else maybe other players have a high ping tjis can slow all pcs down on the server when it get to high.
Try ebay - just picked up Norton Internet Security 2003 for ?15 (and yet get a year's worth of auto updates on-line). Much cheaper than 2004 and cheaper than upgrading existing Norton Internet Security online
I use free version of Zone Alarm on my Pipex ADSL and play Medal Of Honor online with very good frame rates and low ping rate. (My PC- Athlon 2800, 1,024mb ram.
As ? ???K??M? has said, check the ping rates of the server hosting the game and the other players. I think you should look for a server with ping rate of less than 100. Also check that you dont have any other progs.running in the background hogging resources.
Personally, I wouldn't invest cash in Norton firewall, as Zone alarm is fine and generally highly regarded.
