RAR process running to 100%

Post by CRB9000 » October 22nd, 2017, 7:06 pm

I'm running version 2.3.0 on Windows 10 professional. Tried on both Edge and Firefox.

When running without browser, the unpacking process runs disk utilization and memory to 100%.
When running with either browser, the browser will crash, windows issues a memory full error. Browser runs above 50% with only 1 tab.

Just to be sure, disable Direct Unpack in Config Switches.

It can indeed be the case that unrar takes a lot of cpu, this usually doesn't happen because most posters don't compress the files. Buy usually new posters don't know that, so a lot of CPU power is wasted decompressing.

Not sure how the browser affects things, but make sure to set Article Cache not higher than fhe default 450M.
