Your problem seems to be ZoneAlarm..! Users reported problems with it.
Drop it and replace it with other free firewall software.

YoKenny, if this doesn't work, I'm going to come up there and block the opening of your igloo. ;)
The igloo has melted as its Summer here.

By the way, I just installed Privatefirewall V7 on my XP Pro system and I like it so far.

@ Asyn

I was in Böblingen for a few days when I was working attending a course and enjoyed the city and had some good beer with others on the course.

Have you already tried to perform a clean boot to isolate the problem.

I love registry fixers en system utilities for tuning and fixing my pc  :(

Nice info, Kenny..! But Böblingen is not in my country. ;)
But I'm sure the beer there is also worth drinking... ;D

@ jadinolf,

Do you have OA on all your machines or only this one with the problem?  I still think ZA is the problem and as Asyn mentioned earlier others have reported problems between avast and ZA (except the ZA firewall).  In addition, I believe there is also a conflict with OA and ZA, but you should clarify with them on this.  You shouldn't run two third-party firewalls on the same machine.  My recommendation is to remove ZA since you have OA.
I installed OA because it was suggested that I get rid of ZA on this computer so it is just on this computer. The other 4 have ZA Pro.

This has become a moot point since I am now formatting the drive on the problematic computer and will install XP with minimal programs. I hate to have to do this. Last time was 2 Jan 2009.

The formatting had nothing to do with avast!. There were other problems.

I see. ;)
Nevertheless it should also help with your avast problem, as there's nothing better than a fresh system.

Yes--it is finally copying  files. I chose the long format and it took long. :)

Some of the programs you had installed are questionable IMO. I have seen conflicts caused by DiskKeepers filter driver, PowerDesk has file indexing capability if enabled could cause a conflict. Utilities like jv power tools, Tuneup Utilities etc.etc.etc. could cause problems so I'd leave them out of the mix until all your normally used programs are installed and you are running without problems. Oh and Codec packs, your just looking for trouble.

Thanks for the advice. Bear in mind I have 5 computers and all of the programs you mentioned are on those computers with no problems. Anyway, I DO intend to leave the CODEC pack out. Didn't know what it did anyway.

OK, XP is adjusting my screen resolution so I've got to get to work.

Wish me luck. ;D
