I have been noticing that time between hitting key and time it takes to appear on the screen is drastically increased for other applications when Take Command (13.04) is running. The time is especially noticable in Microsoft Office (2010). I have typed ten or more characters before they start showing up. Has anyone else noticed this?

My System has the following:
CPU: i5-2500
Memory: 4 GB
OS: XP Pro sp3

I use XP SP3 in pro and home editions, and in recent months observed the same issue of long delay between keystroke and display. But here it is definitely not related to JPsoft products. It happens even when I enter the user password to log in, before any per-user task (e.g. TCC or TCMD) is started.

Both were generated by Process Explorer.

I also watched the CPU and Context Switch increase for threads created by TCC.EXE when typing in other applications as if they where processing every key stroke.

Process Monitor show a "Process Profiling" operation every second but nothing else even when typing in another application.

I don't seem to have this problem with other PCs running TCC.EXE, just this one.

If it was the AV then why would it only happen when TCC.EXE is running. This only occurs when the TCC.EXE process is running, Another thing is this is a new XP computer, I have been reinstalling everything. I did run TC 12.01 until I could clear up some firewall activation issues. Unlike my other computers, this computer also access lots of network drives and use we use active directory.

Craig,

I am unable to reproduce this issue on my system. I opened up two full TCMD sessions, one with TCmd v12.11 and one with TCmd v14.00.23 preview release (one TCC tab open on each). I open Microsoft Word 2010 (version 14 per MS counting), and start a new file, and I experience no character loss or sluggishness while typing . . . and I can type fairly fast. I closed TCmd and tried the same test with two TCC sessions (wide with 140 chars, 40 lines), and tried editing a Windows document again. No typing sluggishness, dropped characters, or system latency that I could detect.

Windows 7 Pro SP1, 4 GB RAM, 3.0 gHz Intel dual core CPU, rating 4.5 on the "Windows Experience Index" (visible in Win7 under "Control Panel > System"; not available for WinXP). Of course we use active directory here . . . I am using TCC on my office PC.

Craig, try your test at different times of day and see if you get the same problem. Also, maybe it's related to the overall performance of the WinXP machine you are using, or network issues. Try eliminating things that might consume system resources and see what different results you have. Try the same test on your home PC or laptop and see if you get the same results. Just some thoughts. HTH.

I started killing off processes and there is a high probability it is searchindexer.exe or maybe java, but think it is searchindexer. The stupid process thinks it needs to index everything including my network drives. I would have tested this, but an over zealous Desktop Tech, placed me in to the wrong profile group and everything is now locked down. I am trying to get this profile change undone, I'll get back then.

If I run UltraSentry and TCC.EXE at the same time the lag time occurs, separately everything is fine. UltraSentry is a Secure Delete program by IDM Computer Solutions, Inc., the creators of UltraEdit and UltraCompare.
