Hi,

There's no reason that ZoneAlarm would slow your internet speed but it may slow down your PC - do you have on old PC?

If you have the security suite then all the components running together may be too much for your machine i.e. antivirus, antispam, mail checking etc.

Try turning off one or more of these components to see if it makes a difference. If in doubt, remove the program and reinstall.

You can check your internet access speed using http://www.speedtest.net/

The latency test error is probably due to a server being down - try a different one on the map.

If you think that the problem really is Zonealarm then I would uninstall and reinstall it.
