Can any fellow BeSweet users tell me what their experience has been with BeSweet in terms of cpu usage? I'm having problems here. As soon as I start BeSweet, regardless of the format being converted to/from, my cpu usage immediately jumps to 100%. Additionally, my internet connection is killed; anything I'm downloading fails almost immediately. Everything sags. I don't ever remember that happening on my old machine. Now, before you lace into me about how I should be encoding at night w/ no other programs running, etc., I know that. What I want to know is if mine is using an unusual amount of resources, or if everyone has the same problem I do. The measures I've taken to try to remedy the issue include virus, spybot, and trojan scans, a "repair install" of Windows Xp, updating all possible drivers, particularly graphics and motherboard drivers, all to no avail. I really can't say if this problem is limited to just BeSweet either, but it certainly is most noticeable there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I am an idiot when it comes to hardware and computer diagnostics. As I just purchased this pc a couple of weeks ago and started with a clean format, I would very much prefer not to format again and begin the whole process of reinstalling everything and tweaking settings yet again. Also, if it helps, I'm running an Athlon XP 3000+ (2.167 GHz), 512mb DDR, 64mb integrated graphics card and a 160 gig 7200 rpm Maxtor HD.
