I installed spycather express (the free version) a couple of weeks ago and my computer,which usually runs quite fast began to crawl. I also found that zone alarm would either take a very long time to load and would keep flashing up a box saying something like waiting for true vector moniter to initialize or would not load at all and one time when I restarted the computer (hoping zone alarm would load) I had no desktop icons another time I could only open folders but not programmes. After I uninstalled spycatcher everything went back to normal. I really liked spycather though and wondered if there is anything I could do to rectify it. Also going by hijack this it installs a rootkit I dont know what that is or if its bad.
