I've just upgraded my rather elderly Dell 9200 (Dual core 2.4GHz 4Gb RAM)to Windows 7 64 bit from XP. I installed Capture NX2 (64 bit) and it ran considerably faster than under XP, happy bunny timeI didn't use CNX2 for a week but when I tried it locked the PC up requiring a restart and occasionally bring up a BSD. I finally discovered after re-installs etc etc that the problem was due to the Windows 7 CPU gadget. I had enabled it to monitor another problem that I was having, with it removed all was well againI hope this saves somebody the agro I've just been through!Alan

How did you determine this? I run the CPU gadget on my Win 7 64 bit system and CNX2 64 bit and have not seen any problems.

A process of elimination, disabling running programs in sequence, as soon as the CPU gadget was removed CNX2 ran. I suspect that it may have to do with the GPU

A meter to display CPU Usage and RAM usage. Much like task manager but it shows on your desktop or optionally always on top.
