    Has anyone experienced this problem? Up until around Christmas I could use DVD Decryptor and Shrink simultaneously (different movies) and surf the Internet w/o problems. Now I can only do one program and that's it due to it taking up so much of my systems resources. I have a gig of RAM memory and a Athlon 2.5 processor and up until a month and a half ago I had no problems. My daughter got a few SIMS games for Christmas and has played them without problems. I know Shrink really uses a lot of the processor (has been up to 100% routinely while using Shrink) but have never experienced so much of a system slow down when using Shrink and Decryptor at the same time. Anyone else experienced this and can offer a solution?

    Below are a few things to look for:

    1) DMA - make sure all your DMA are On/Available.
    2) Make sure to defrag your hard drive at least once a week.
    3) Clean all your temp and cookies files always before "turning off" your computer.
    4) Run Disk Cleanup or CCleaner at least twice a week.

    You really shouldn't be decrypting, shrinking, and surfing, all at the same time. As you said shrink takes up almost 100% processor. What's left for the other programs?
