Windows hangs when viewing compiled file

Recommended Posts


After I compile a script and open windows explorer to view or copy the exe to a new location, Windows XP hangs and the processor cpu jumps up to 100% with Windows Explorer as the highest running process. After about two minutes, the cpu drops back down and I'm able to view, copy, or run the exe. Also, I notice that it takes about 45 or 50 seconds for the autoit icon for the exe file to load. Is this because the exe is encrypted?

Sounds like your antivirus having a problem. My AVG 9 takes a moment to recognise compiled script icons when I use my file manager.

It depends how old the computer is, but I get it for a few seconds on my computer. I think its just becouse its a big file. The other thing that happens is that it doesn't load the icon for a while...

How does your computer react opening a directory like windows\System32\ or another big folder?

Which version of Windoze is exhibiting this problem?

What service pack level?

Have you applied all the patches to Windoze?

What antivirus software are you running (list them all if more than one)
