Trying to reformat this question. Keeps formatting several paragraphs into one when I submit.
I have been monitoring today due to a sometimes delay encountered in opening applications with ZAISS 10.0.240.000 installed. It started after the install of 10.0.240.000. I installed ZAISS clean; un-installed version 9.3.? with Windows Add or Remove Programs then ran the "clean.exe" before installing 10.0.240.000.
When the delay occurs, vsmon.exe seems hung and is using 60-100% CPU. The application will load, but only after a 20-45 second delay. No update or scan in progress. And it only happens "sometimes". Never experienced this with any prior versions. Both Windows Task Manager and Sysinternals Process Explorer are showing the problem.
Yes, I know that 10.0.243.000 is available, but was there a bug relating to a vsmon.exe stalling problem that was fixed in 10.0.243.000?
NOTE: For some reason, my post is being reformatted from several paragraphs to just one when I submit or save the changes (edit).
