Resource Usage anomalies

Postby kaloni » Thu Sep 06, 2007 8:13 pm

Picoscope ver:
windows XP service pack 2 + latest updates (incl. dotnet 3)
P 4 2.66Ghz + 1GB DDR 400 RAM + 32 MB onboard video

After opening/starting picoscope software the memory load is around 40MB in the taskmanager.
The typical picoscope data files are 20 MB in size, but the test file was reduced to <1MB. So it does not matter what is the file size as soon i hit the minimize button - the PC starts to slow down that it takes a minute or 2 for the mouse to move. And I cannot restore the Picoscope to maximise view. The memory usage jumps to ~800MB in the task manager and the CPU usage hits (and stays )100%.
So i have to hit 'end process tree' and after 2minutes PC becomes responsive.

Any :idea: :?: why this strange

I personally have not encountered this problem on any of the PCs I ran the software on. Maybe there is some other software causing this problem?

Kind regards
