<<snip>> and my security software consists of Bit Defender total Security 2014 supplemented by Malware Bytes 2014.
In my present set up Noteworthy version 2.55 runs under Windows 7 Pro
firstly, while melismata is correct about running multiple AntiMalware, IIRC Malwarebytes is a non-resident scan on demand tool only so shouldn't be part of the problem.
If you're running the paid version or a free trial of the paid version, then it is indeed a resident scanner. I ran into this on a friend's machine that was "running slow." She'd accidentally agreed to a free trial and was also running Microsoft Security Essentials.
Ahh, I stand corrected, thanks Francis.Nevertheless, multiple anti-malware is usually a speed problem, not often a crash creator (well, not THAT often )I'd still look at CPU temps... Or just possibly video card temps.
The only one of the HDDs that is anywhere near full up is the smallest one, designated "C", which carries the Windows 7 O/S. As far as I know, Noteworthy is the only program I have had this trouble with lately. I haven't noticed the cooler on the processor to be particularly dusty lately. Maybe I aught to try switching off Malware Bytes next time I use Noteworthy.
My Viewer is 2.55
the latest NWC version is 2.51a. If your version really says 2.55, then this is an obvious cause for concern.
Once again, many thanks everyone for all your helpful suggestions. I've now deleted Malware Bytes and enjoyed two one a half hour crash free sessions on Noteworthy. I'm still puzzled about the version number. Every time I go to "Help, About" it still comes up with version 2.5.5, copyright 2012. Cheers, John.
ALERT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING ALERTContrary to Haymo's recommendation, DO NOT DEFRAG an SSD!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm not sure where he gets the 18% free space figure from, but it's close to the absolute MINIMUM figure I use which is 20% - I prefer 50% where reasonable...
