What is VSmon Programme

  Border View 15:58 30 Apr 2003

This morning when I switched on my computer it opened to the desk top but there was a message to say


An error has occured in your program. To keep working anyway click Ignore and save your work to a new file. To quit this program, click close. You will lose information you entered since your last save.

I clicked on Close. Then got the message that VSmon has performed an illegal operation. Then woosh the screen went black with a row of small green columns along the top of the screen.

I pressed the restart button and when the desk top returned I then got the message that Kernel 32 this programme has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

To safeguard my computer, I restarted and using GoBack (a God send) reverted my HDD to the start of yesterday. Nothing lost.

But what is VSmon.

Can anyone advise on my difficulties please.

It's the True Vector Monitor component of Zone Alarm.

See the link above - Someone else is having problems on the ZA forum with it.

It would appear to be a problem with Zone Alarm. Has anyone else encountered a similar problem?
