    PG 3, beta 2 is really hogging CPU utilization. With ALL programs turned off and PG 3 Protection disabled, my CPU time is 0-4%. Turning on PG 3 Protection immediately jumps the CPU utilization to 15-17%...steady. It makes no difference with or without options in Global protection, learning mode, or Execution Protection. Every option can be off and the CPU utilization stays at 15-17%.

    With all programs turned on, I run a consistent 22-27% with PG 3, Beta 3. With PG V2, it was 3-10% with about 6% being average. :(

    HELP...this is very undesireable...for any program to hog this much CPU.

    Forgot...Running XP-SP2, 2.6 ghertz P4, 1.5 gbyte DRAM

    Hi Siliconman01,
    You may be best to check your Alerts log as V3 uses about half the CPU time than V2.
    You may find that there is an application constantly paging a protected list item and using a lot of CPU time.

    Here is ascrenshot of TM showing CPU usage, pleas note the overall "CPU time" that DCSuserprot & PGaccount have used. 15 times less than KAV monitor (AvpM) for instance and 60 times less than SpySweeper:)

    Siliconman01,

    Are you running any other process monitoring software? (e.g. Abtrusion Protector, PrevX, System Safety Monitor). I have encountered one case where a conflict (over a third program) caused PG's CPU utilisation to soar.
