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/

Dear Grimkin,

apart from above solution is there any other issue with my pc. I have latest model pc with 1 gb ram and 80 gb hard disk out of which only 10 gb memory used.  I dont have components like what u advise i.e anti virus, antispam or mail checking etc. I have tried speedtest.net web site for my internet connection checking it shows following error messgae. Please suggest what to do to overcome this issues.

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.
