    I'm having a problem with soulseek every couple of days now. When I start it up and scans shared folders it freezes up and does not respond. Any thoughts of why it would stop responding all the time??

    I am running:

    Win. XP Pro SP1
    192 SDRAM
    700MHz AMD Duron processor
    10.0 Mbps Cable Internet connection

    I never had this problem until about a week ago and have been using SS for months now.

    XP sometimes says it's not responding, but really it's still loading the program up, i know u have a lot of files, so it's usually that. i have a lot too, and if u use Windows Task Manager you can see how much RAM slsk.exe is using. mine starts at 14MB and creeps up to around 25MB of RAM usage, sometimes it takes a while, sometimes it's instant. if it seems to freeze right click on the process slsk.exe and change the priority to High instead of Normal. i don't know if this actually does anything, but it seems to speed up the process when it seems locked on my PC.

    hope that helps

    When I open Task manager it says its using 100% of memory usage! When this happens I just leave it running and it eventually starts up 10-45 minutes later....sometimes not at all.
    I also tried setting the priority to high and didn't do anything
    Hopefully I'll get this fixed

    But d/l's and u/l's are still going!
    Look at the shots below....look at the user and then in the user list:

    whatever downloads have started before you get disconnected will finish because the connection has already been made by your and the other person's pc. if it remains disconnected the next download/upload won't start, as the soulseek client isn't operating to make the connection between the two pc's for you.

    I've got a question for you. I left SS running overnight & it seems I got d/c'd from one room but not the other. It then reconnected on its own accord. If the server when down why did I only have probs with one room?
