Is there a way of running ZA that doesn't take so much resources.

It takes up 12% when I activate it. I'm not running one of those bigboys. Only and old laptop.

Hiya

Its not usual for it to run that much, though I don't monitor it much :)

You could try trimming your startup programs.

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

This will reduce rescources.

Unless of course, you have something thats trying to get out. Have you run a virus scan lately?

I run pretty lean in the startup department and just did a virus scan today. My resources meter usually runs at about 75 to 80% but ZA knocks that down to the low sixtes. It doesn't seem to slow my system down that much, but just was wondering.
