hi guys, lately ive been having poblems with using winrar. when i use it its using 100% CPU usage. is this normal? i also get blue screen of death too if the file i want to rar is about 500mb or more. i got a AMD 3200 + with 3gb RAM which is more than enough id of thought to do this.
anyone have any ideas what could be causing the problem?
I do not think it is a problem with memory at 3 Gb. I think the answer to this is the size of the files to be archived. I know there are size limits to any archiving program and this is something that should be looked into. The larger the file the more likely for a crash. There could be 100 Gb of Ram and it would not make a difference.
