Is there a way to end vsmon.exe process? Everytime when I tried, it kept saying Access Denied. I know that I can end this process by right click on the zone alarm icon on the system tray and choose shutdown but that is tideous. I want to write a script to shutdown zone alarm at certain time.

shutting down vsmon does not shut down ZA completely.

if you are having problems with vsmon that is a different problem.

if you need to shut down ZA (while you are not connected to the internet) to install some software that ZA blocks during installation then make sure you are disconnected from the internet.

if you just want to kill vsmon you can do it from the task manager.

VSMON is a program that can eat up to 100% of the CPU time (on occasion), and can be VERY annoying to the user.

Thankfully, there is a simple way to stop it doing that.

1. Open CONTROL PANEL
2.Open ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS
3. Open SERVICES
4. Find the TRUEVECTOR INTERNET MONITOR
5. Right click on it and select PROPERTIES
6. In the STARTUP TYPE drop down select MANUAL.

Restart your computer.

That’s all there is to it.

The next time you access the internet, you MAY find that your blocked, but don’t worry. Just start up your Zone Labs firewall program and them shut the program down. This will reset all connection protocols and allow you to access the internet without using Zone Labs.

Also, as an extra plus, if you ever again use Zone Labs firewall, when you decide to close the program, VSMON will also close down too…It will not be left open running in the background.

Cheers

PS: You cannot use the task manager to kill VSMON.Exe as it is protected.
