Performance problems when uninstall a program.

Post by alex » Fri Aug 21, 2009 3:38 pm

Hi David,
As everyone said, thanks for this great tool.

I noticed that when I uninstall a large program,the uninstall process will remove a lot of files in a short time,everything keeping updating the database,
and that make system slow.The same problem happens when you install a program.

I hope you can duplicate this in your environment.Thanks~

Does this problem occur with Everything version 1.2.1.371?

How many Everything windows do you have open?
Most of the CPU usage is used to render the results.
Everything 1.2.1.371 will only re-render results no more than every second which should use minimal CPU usage..

It could be possible that the program being installed is renaming a folder...
Renaming a folder can cause "Everything" to use 100% CPU usage if this folder has many subfolders and files.
I have improved the performance of "Everything" when renaming a folder for the next release of "Everything".

Yes, it happens in version 1.2.1.371.

No everything window is opened,everything is running in background.Don't know is it a rename case.

I will try next release,will back to this topic if not improved.

Thanks.
