ZoneAlarm vsmon.exe memory gobbling problem

  Brirev 19:17 09 Mar 2009

I am running XP.
vsmon.exe (which is linked to ZoneAlarm) was using up loads of RAM. I uninstalled ZoneAlarm and the problem stopped. I tried to reinstall and it said that I couldn't run vsmon.exe due to some problem with permissions.

Any ideas, please?

Assuming I can't reinstall ZoneAlarm:-
Is it a very bad idea to just use the XP firewall?
(browser: Firefox)
What's the AVG firewall like?
Any good free firewalls, please?

Thanks in advance for any help!
