My apologies for the inflammatory thread title but in this case it is literally true. The Propeller Tool is sucking over 30% of my CPU performance even when not doing anything!
Today it bugged me enough to open up the task manager and see what was happening. To my surprise the Propeller Tool is top of the list consuming over 30% of my CPU and hence battery life!
This is a big surprise because:
1) There is no sign anywhere else that the Prop Tool is even running.
2) As far as I recall since I fired up the Prop Tool last this machine has been restarted, upgraded, power cycled...
Anyone else seen this problem?
I can live with the Prop Tool getting wedged and draining performance but when there is no sign of it even running, except in the task manager, that is a bit of an issue.
