Windows task manager shows a process with image name vsmon.exe running, its one of the highest mem usage process there. Anyone know what it is ? When I try to end the process I get "The operation could not be completed. Access is denied" I am logged in as administrator & am running Windows XP Home Edition SP2.

vsmon.exe is a processs associated with the ZoneAlarm firewall. It is used to monitor Internet traffic and generate alerts depending on the security rules configured by the user. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

If you arent at that moment needing a firewall eg offline ro something like that then you can just turn off the firewall it should shut down the app.

I wasn't sure whether it was to do with zonealarm or not cause I hadn't seen it until recently to be honest. Anyway I've got the help I needed.
Thank you both very much.
