I hope you can tell me the location of Task Manager, I forgot where it is now.

at the same time you must push the keys ALT+CANC+DEL

You can create a shortcut on the desktop: open C:/ WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/TASKMGR.EXE (I don't remember well the name: is a little green squared icon)

I was thinking a good registry cleaner  (as previously suggested)   and I know Technical and suggested a little program that helps you organize how programs startup.     Im doing a search but cannot seem to find it..   grr  lol

ok, FIXER. Have you tried (in the Task Manager) to right-click on the Zone Lab process and set the priority on "low"? Is a delicate thing but you can try and reboot. Then come here again and post the result. I wait... The setting is reversible.

Dear Kamulko,

Cannot they change taskmanager to _root_taskmngr.exe; it is just a trick, like changing regedit.exe to _root_regedit.exe. Because root is root.
Sadly I had to take out  the monkey, because there were complaints about the size of my jumping avatar. I gave the monkey a face now , but is is still 108, that is an extra 8, but it is not that high, so squarely I am safe on size. Or would they complain again. Why some people cannot see the sun in the water? And the complaints are from the land where they sing " don't fence me in?"
OK. I comply, but with a bleeding heart. Did you finish your cappuccino, or did you have another.

Ciao,

POLONUS

You are a poet!  ;D About the Task Manager: maybe I have not explained well (in my english); I wish to say "Maybe is useful to create a link from TaskManager root to the Desktop". Sometimes the mind don't remember also the easy things.  :)

I set ZA to low, but nothing change.   This is weird.  Even after reboot.   :-\

Ok, FIXER, reset the ZA on th normal value... I don't understand the reason of this behavior by the program... have you installed some new program/process that is starting before of Avast?
