"That would be a possible option, but I tried MSE, liked it (other than this issue), and it passed every test I threw at it. So it works great, no real reason to change. If I would not have found a way to shut it down, then I may have had to have tried something else."
Now what does that state?? "....other than this issue."
You only choose to read what suits your own agenda. You are confrontational and argumentative, with a personal vendetta. Not desirable characteristics for a mod. I'm past the point of being fed up with it. Insults or condescending remarks--if you must--should be taken up in a PM.
Read a post, put aside your bias and personal hatred, and reply IF you can help. Otherwise your actions are not conducive to a positive, polite and friendly forum experience.
I'm a bit surprised that you're finding MSE to be a resource hog.
I've one machine, a Dell Optiplex 740 - the original, not the 740 Enhanced - w/ dual core AMD Athlon CPU & 2 GB RAM running XP SP3, on which waiting for the AVG boot scans in particular, and its use of resources in general, had become increasingly troublesome as it advanced from version to version. I replaced it with MSE, and got my old speedy machine back.
