Try slowing all the data update times in the Settings dialog.
If that fixes it, try turning them up one by one until you find out whats causing it.

As long as CC is on its permanly like that looks like its on a loop. It goes back to normaly only when CC is off

I have tryed the "Slow HD44780" option on and off it makes no diffrence to the cpu abusage.

anything else you need to know?

thanks

Pyrotek.....

I, too, am experiencing the same problem you have. Tried
to get some help here but got nowhere.

What I found was that with CC running, usage was anywhere
between 5 - 40 %. If I opened IE, usage went down to 0 - 7%.
Close IE and the usage then jumped to 80 - 100 % . Only way
to get the usage back down was to reboot the system and not
have IE open.

Suspect its a memory leak or some bug in CC .

plased to see i am not the only one

But IE has no effect on it as well it still dose the same thing as
the above picture weather IE is open or closed as long as CC is running its doing that.

I hope i can get some help or CC will be getting uninstaleld. Its usless the way it is now i rather not hafto since its nice softwhere

Next thing to try:

Remove all modules setup in CC.
Add a "Simulated LCD" and add some screens to that.
See if you still have the problem.

As i said in another thread:


A quick update on this.
The email checking code does use 100% CPU time (nothing i can do about this), but the thread its running in is set at idle priority.
This means that while it does use 100% CPU time, it will not interrupt or slow down other applications or games.
