Something similar, but worse, happened to me a few months ago with Zonealarm. The initial message said I needed to update the software, and it promised on the first screen that the process would take only “90 seconds”… Yeah, that was the time to connect to server and find the update – not the time it took to download the update! The download time was in excess of 8 minutes, and THEN I had to install it, which took another 5 minutes PLUS a restart of Windows; everybody knows how long it can take to restart Windows on an older computer… The entire thing popped up right when I was ready to go to bed, so I was very pleased. So pleased that I uninstalled Zonealarm a few days later!
