    Background: Linksys BEFSR41 with two very similar homebuilt boxes attached. Both are Intel P4's on Intel boards. One is a 2.8ghz and the other is 2.66. Both are running XP Home.

    1) I used an application called nLite http://nuhi.msfn.org/index.html to custom load XP on both.

    2) I use an application called Process Explorer http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml to monitor CPU usage and active processes.

    3) I found that on the 2.66 box, LnS was using 17-23% CPU at idle, at all times. On the 2.8 box, LnS was using a constant 2% at idle.

    4) I tried to uninstall / reinstall LnS on the 2.66 box and got the dreadful "Unable to load the lnsfw driver error 0" fault.

    5) Following another thread on this forum, I found a link provided by Blackcat to PhantOm's Pantastic Uninstaller http://www.fluxgfx.com/ssc/showthread.php?t=122 .

    6) Used Pantastic Uninstaller with no problems whatsoever on both machines; reinstalled LnS and now ... 0% CPU usage at idle on both machines. YEAH!

    I just wanted to say you guys ROCK!!! When I initially bought LnS a year or so ago, I had problems configuring LnS to work with my router. This forum helped then too. Thanks! :D

    Hey ched

    I’m very pleased to read this post and alike which mentions user’s experiences with Pantastic UnInstaller, it motivates me to improve on it further, and I do have version to be released in the upcoming days. And in addition I’m happy it has helped you fix an Look ‘n’ Stop anomaly, and I hope you enjoy Look ‘n’ Stop and if you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to poster. :)
