I'm using Spector Pro primarily for capturing screenshots on some Windows XP machines, as per our customer's wishes. These machines (Dell Optiplex 780) were originally shipped to us with Windows 7 Pro. I installed our software, as well as Spector Pro and a few other third party applications, and everything worked as expected.
After being informed that our customer requires these machines use Windows XP, we performed the OS downgrade, reinstalled our software, and reinstalled all of the third party software. Now, whenever Spector Pro is taking screenshots, explorer.exe uses an entire CPU core, degrading the performance of everything else.
I have already tried changing the BIOS settings so that the HDD is in legacy mode, as I suspect the issue is writing the screenshots to the HDD, however this didn't solve the problem. Lowering the quality or frequency of the screenshots is also not an option.
Any help would be appreciated.
