I am running Take Command/TCC 13.03.41 on Windows 7 x64 inside a VMWare Workstation VM. As I open for TCC instances inside Take Command CPU utilization goes up. Each TCC instance takes around 3% or 4% with each corresponding conhost taking another 1% to 2%. Take Command's CPU utilization starts around 2% with one instance and will be up to about 10% by the time I have 5 or 6 instances open, so the total CPU usage will got from about 5% to 8% with nothing but process explorer running. When I open Take Command with 6 TCC instances CPU usage goes to about 55%. This is with everything idle. According to Process Explorer: * the thread taking the CPU in TCC shows TakeCmd.dll!?AllocDup@@YGPA_WPA_W@Z+0x1c8 * the thread taking the CPU in Take Command show tcmd.exe!?CallHtmlHelp@@YGHPA_W@Z+0x131a57 Is there any other info that would help?
