Does your computer remain slow when Mach has closed down?

I have run Mach on a few different computers, and it seems to bog down the computer even when it has been shut down.
The only computer that it didnt do this to, has an Intell chip, all the others were AMD.
Does your computer run slow until it is rebooted ?

Hi Benny, Is it just the mouse, video or is it everything?

Programs take ages to open. Basically it become sluggish in most areas.
This has not been a problem because I use a computer that just runs Mach to drive the machine.
However when I power up mach on my home use computer to test things, it does become a problem when I want to then use other software afterwards.

Hey Benny,
     I noticed this in the past if I installed the drivers. This was on my office PC. I actually replaced the hard drive once. A friend of mine told me of the problem. He said once he loaded Mach his PC got slower and slower, thought he was fixing to have some serious problems. He removed the Mach drivers and it fixed him up. This may all be coincident but I don't install the drivers on the office PC anymore. Did you install the drivers?
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

My guard dog is not what you need to worry about!

I have AMD 3200 Athalon with XP and also Intel P3 1Ghz win2k and not had any issues with Mach 3 shut down - all versions. I have laptop Intel Centrino and didn't install the drivers so not sure about that.

Had lots of hang-ups before I found the Mach3 inputs config had a random reference to Port 2 that was not enabled - kept crashing when the mouse was moved! Took months to find!

When your computer is slow, use Ctl Alt Del, select task manager and processes and see if Mach3 is still running - and CPU usage? Might help see what is going on.

By the way, did you optimise running processes? XP, I did not, Win 2k I did - helped a lot with performance but take care...
