High CPU useage

Recommended Posts

When SAS is running, computer at a crawl, for an extended time.

SAS says it has been running for over 3 hours, the timer is till incrementing, and CPU still 100%, 3.06GHz Celeron-D, 4GB Crucial RAM, XP Pro 64bit.

Task manager confirms that the offending process is SAS.

Right click shows this process is running at normal priority, and CPU is at 100%, SAS hitting around 98%.

Right click allows me to set priority to Low.

CPU still at 100% but PC now responds normally, much faster.

So I assume setting SAS to low priority still allows it 100% CPU when nothing else is being done, but other activities can take priority, which is why PC goes faster.

Is there a registry hack where I can set SAS process priority, or better still in SAS options?

Uncheck the DDA (Direct Disk Access) in the Scanning Control - does that still have the 3 hour scan time?
