I forgot to mention that the peaking process (35-39%) during the (ini) file writing phase (using your script
, jgpaiva) is the system.exe
process. I don't know if that gives any clues...
Ok, so that explains the problem with farr. Curiously, it doesn't explain the problem with gridmove, as it only READS in the section that causes you problems, and the read times you posted look pretty average.
i know, strange.
Regarding the fix for the slow read times, maybe you should open a new thread?
You mean... a thread about my problem with GridMove ini file, or in general?
BTW, I just tried reloading, closing, rerunning, etc. GridMove, and the problem is pretty much GONE (or at least, attenuated) : the process reaches 33% for about 1sec and the whole initialisation takes about 3-4s, which seems pretty acceptable (compared to my previous 1.5 min). But maybe is it not optimal, compared to somebody else's computer
I suspect part of the problem was Comodo's (v3) fault, since I've now uninstalled it completely
-- unfortunately, at that point comodo's guilt is a mere hypothesis. To verify and legitimate my allegations, I'd have to reinstall Comodo and see what happens (I'll do that later).
But farr still stalls for 6s.
Have you noticed other programs taking too long to write files? How about moving stuff from that disk to another and back?
Not really... But then, I probably just didn't notice -- I'm usually pretty attentive though.
- copying a 90Mb file from one partition to another takes about 4sec.
- copying a 846mb directory (with 12 big archives and 9 different folders inside) from one partition to another takes 48s
- copying 2x900mb image file from my external usb drive to my internal HD : 33s for 1st file, 37s for 2nd one.
- saving an 8mb Word file from scratch is 1-2s.
- copying a 600 pages Word document (445 505 words, 8mb) to the clipboard takes about 3-4s. Pasting it back in a new Word document takes about 4s too. Saving the document to the hard drive takes less than 2s.
These numbers seem pretty normal to me... Aren't they ??
What else could I try?
Uninstall NOD32 ???
