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 time

I 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 again

I hope this saves somebody the agro I've just been through!
