Windows 7: Lately Windows Live Photo Gallery takes up 70%-90% of CPU!

Lately Windows Live Photo Gallery takes up 70%-90% of CPU!

Hello all,

Recently (meaning it wasn't like this from the beginning), when I open Windows Live Photo Gallery to edit photos, I notice in the Task Manager that WLXPhotoGallery.exe takes up 50%-70% of CPU. The dllhost.exe that it brings up, takes up another 20%-25%!

Needless to say all hell breaks loose, the computer starts overheating and I think I'll fry my hard disk if I leave it on for more than a few seconds.

It might be corrupted, don't know how it did. Any suggestions?

The only reason I'm using this lousy piece of software is that I haven't installed my Nero 7 Ultra from 5 years ago. I read that it may not be compatible with Win 7.

Thanks!

Thank you both.

I went into Options and unchecked "Find people in your photos", closed and restarted Photo Gallery...that did it. CPU usage returned to 0%.
