Hi everybody!

Here is my issue, i received a message saying that my virtual memory was full, so i investigated to see what's filling it. After disconnecting the internet connection, and by opening the task manager under windows, i realised that the process vsmon.exe was slowly increasing its use of memory and finally, killing my ressources. As soon as i stop ZA, my memory comes back to normal and remaines still.. is it a configuration problem ? how can i stop this?

thanks for answering

This is what we call a memory leak. I would recomend that you uninstall and reinstall zone alarm.
