Having recently doubled my PC memory, I was not surprsied to find that running five fat (‘phat’?) applications at the same was a lot less painful with less need for the OS to use virtual memory (virutal RAM at a snails pace via your hard disk).

However, upon returning to my computer today, I was suprised to find it running very slowly – as if processing some large video or multilayered image.  On inspection, I discovered the culprit and in so doing proof that Outlook is a resource hog – at least according to CachemanXP.  Check out the CPU Usage:

Wow!  I’ve no doubt Outlook consumes many more CPU cycles than it needs, however, it appears to have discovered some form of software over-clocking … 2.1 million% CPU utilisation … intensive much?

(Obviously it’s a combination of near max utilisation and misreporting by CachemanXP, which is a good product BTW)
