Question about Pinnacle Studio Plus 12 for PC

1 Answer


I opened Windows Task Manager (Processes) and discovered that Studio.exe was using large amounts of memory, 490k to 550k, and cpu usage (Performance) was at 97% to 100%, with no other applications open or running.

I am using a PH Pavilion laptop with 2 G RAM, running XP Pro with Service Pac 3

I reloaded Pinnacle V12.1 Ultimate again, but nothing has changed.

Any suggestions?

Msn running slow

Explore.exe is your windows environment, it is the bar at the bottom and your desktop, etc. This may be working at a high level of CPU cycles because you are trying to do something within windows (It may be because you just opened the task manager screen).

If iexplore is taking up a lot of processes, that is your internet browser. It may be because you are trying to run a large Java applet, or it is currently downloading a large webpage.

Overall, to optimize your PC, I would recommend running disk defragmentor. To do this, go to My Computer, right click your hard drive (Most likely named Local Disk (C:) ), and go to properties. When on the properties page, click the Tools tab at the top and click the Defragment Now... button in the middle of the screen. While in the program, press the Defragment button. I would suggest running this 3 times in a row to make sure that your data is completely defragmented and pushed to the beginning of your drive. Most people will tell you after doing this that their PC runs like new.
