Solution To The Zone Alarm Vsmon.exe High CPU Slow Streaming Video

If you opened msconfig to figure out why you can never have a decent streaming video experience, and realized it’s Zone Alarm’s wondrous Vsmon.exe what can you do.  I’ve search high, and wide across the internet, and found no solution.  The fact is this seems to happen with all third party firewalls that I’ve tried.  Youtube, and Netflix will work great for some reason but other websites don’t because they’re so scared you’ll steal their precious videos.  Hence the streaming BS!  The only solution to this is to set Zone Alarm to not start next time you start your computer, activate the Windows Firewall in the Control Panel Security Center,and then re-start the computer.  Your streaming video experience will then be more bearable.  Also try making your browser window smaller, and see if the video will shrink.  So many sites have to make their videos so large with no option to make them smaller.  This helps use less power along with seeing if the video has any controls to watch in a lesser quality format.  If you’re having these issues then HD will never be a reality because apparently you need some kind of supercomputer for that.  If only these websites could simply use the same video delivery process as Youtube or Netflix.  If you’re even having issues with those sites then there’s probably something more going on with your computer than the firewall, or you simply have a crappy computer.  Click here to buy a cheap refurbished one, and hope your video problems vanish forever!
