terrypin Posted May 6, 2009 Report Share Posted May 6, 2009 I've been aware of this problem for a week or so and I'm enquiring in about it in other places because I'm guessing it's probably an XP issue, not ME Pro. But as its symptom is the dramatic slow-down of at least one of my macros I thought maybe one of the experts here might be able to help please. In brief, I have a macro that uses pixel identification to change a folder that's open in List view to Detail view and set up the column widths conveniently. It's scoped to Explorer, activated by a hotkey (Ctl+d), and works fine, taking a second or so to finish. However, lately it's started taking 6 seconds or so to finish. I've started testing it at frequent intervals (like worrying at a nagging toothache) and note that shortly after reboot it's fine, then say 15 mins later it's running on treacle again. Does that so far ring any bells with other ME Pro users - i.e. a macro that seems to slow down significantly sometimes? However, after much detective work I'm assuming this is associated with something else. If I use Process Monitor, even though I'm not actively doing much in any of the applications currently loaded, I see hundreds if not thousands of one type of entry dominating. Here's just a fragment extract: Process = Lsass.exe, PID = 804 Operation, Path, Result RegOpenKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy SUCCESS RegOpenKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc SUCCESS RegQueryValue HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc\(Default) BUFFER OVERFLOW RegCloseKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc SUCCESS RegOpenKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc SUCCESS RegQueryValue HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc\(Default) SUCCESS RegCloseKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc SUCCESS RegCloseKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy SUCCESS RegOpenKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy SUCCESS RegOpenKey HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc SUCCESS RegQueryValue HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\SecDesc\(Default) BUFFER OVERFLOW etc Meaningless to me, but maybe a clue for someone else, whether or not ME related ? FWIW, this is a Quad Core Q9450 2.66 GHz, 4 GB (XP SP2 uses about 3 GB of it). -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
