I have installed Zone Alarm.

ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:6.5.722.000
TrueVector version:6.5.722.000
Driver version:6.5.722.000
Anti-virus Vet engine version:
Anti-virus signature DAT file version:31.1.5702.000
Anti-spyware engine version:
Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200804.3705
AntiSpam version:

Whenever I load Zone Alarm, either at startup or manually, it hangs for 5-7 mins. I tried to know wht's going on by raising task manager's priority to 'Real time' and then loading zone alarm. I found that vsmon.exe was hogging almost 100% of the cpu during start up. I am using cable internet having modem of Scientific Atlanta.

I have WinXP running on a P-4 Prescott 2.4Ghz, 512 DDR ram.

One more problem, i frequently encounter blue screen of death with msg "Stop 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and the name of vsdatant.sys somewhere in the blue screen. The problem occurs randomly, but most often when I load Yahoo messenger when Zone Alarm is running.

All these problems are related to ZA. so can anyone help me!!! I am having exams and have to waste a lot of time due to this problem.

Also, here's my HiJackThis log :
