Everything Uh-Oh!

Written 9 August, 2009

Everything Uh-Oh!

Torley Linden gives good advice, and I usually heed what he says in his blogs. However, I noticed today that the program Everything (which helps in searches of the hard drive) was dogging my system, taking up as much as 22% of processor time as it ran in the background. Ouchie!

Needly to say, I closed Everything down immediately; my frame rate promptly doubled. Then I loaded MSCONFIG and stopped it from running on startup. Now I think I'll just remove the program altogether. No fast search is worth the performance hit.
