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?

Do you have much memory? Shrinking files that are so large uses a lot of resources. It's not abnormal to use 100% of the processor during the shrink, but not, of course, by just opening the program.

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.
