Hello. Hi. I have a new Inspiron 1545 laptop (will replace my desktop soon!), with Vista x64 SP2, 4 GB RAM, and a marvel 88e8040 fast PCIe NIC. I also have ZAPRO 8.0.298.000. For antivirus I use ESET NOD32 (x64 version). Basically my issue is leaked TCP connections, that is the network stack is littered with connections which are never closed. This is a serious, serious problem, as my system became a dog after 1 day of usage. After I uninstalled ZAPRO, the issue went away. I've noticed that TCP-Z shows me that my established TCP connections keep on increasing and almost never seem to go down as time go by and I keep on accessing the Internet. Now I have only 1 IE instance running, and I currently have 303 established connections shown in TCP-Z! Also, I used "netstat -ab" to look at my connections, and I see in the system process a WHOLE SLEW of connections to sites which I had previously browsed but since closed. Moreover, "netstat -ab" confirms that I have a great deal of connections open. I checked with task manager just to make sure there were no runway IE/Firefox processes, and there were none. It looks like there is a connection leak on my system! Can anyone confirm this with Vista x64 SP2, and ZAPRO running? I don't know where the problem is, but it is a clearly a low level issue of some kind, unless this is normal behaviour on Vista SP2. AFAIK, when a process terminates, its connections terminate with it. Otherwise insanity prevails. So my questions: a) Can anyone else with ZAPRO, Vista x64, and SP2 confirm this issue? I've already posted to the ZA boards. b) Could anyone recommend a replacement? Thanks!
