100% CPU usage running MDX
Somewhere along the line something has happened on my computer that is causing issues with Fusion Control Centre. Basically, whenever MDX is in the foreground, the CPU usage sits at 100%. This happens no matter which skin I use - even the default one and if no brain is attached. If the program is minimised, it drops down to the (expected) single figures.
I have tried
- reinstalling the latest MDX software and updates and rebooting;
- installing the latest directx redistributable (from March 2009);
- running in "basicgui" mode;
- playing around with the "gui" timer to make it refresh much slower
and still have this CPU usage problem. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this issue?
P.S. This may be unrelated but watching the memory usage it appears to be going in a pattern repeating every few seconds - e.g. 39,000 kB, 56,000kB, 70,000kB and then returning to 39,000kB, etc. (these numbers are not exact but merely representative).
