magic Posted March 30, 2009 Share Posted March 30, 2009 Hi, I have used Paint.Net for a long time and it was working perfectly and I update it as soon as a new version released (current version is 3.36). .Net v.3.5 is installed on my machine (Dell Latitude, Windows XP SP3) But there's a problem that had just shown up yesterday (last time I used it before that was 3 days ago and it was working fine and no windows updates happened since). Here is what happened in details: While using it, BitDefender asked me to allow Paint.Net to access the net - which is a little bit weird since this usually happens when a program is installed or updated. I allowed it and it worked fine until I tried to save. The program stopped responding and I had to kill it (BTW, It was not utilizing CPU at all before killing its process). I found out that the same problem happens when I open/save/save as, and if I don't kill it, it takes a very long time to perform the required operation. Uninstalling Paint.Net and reinstalling it did not solve the problem. Finally. I found out that the problem does not happen unless I'm connected to the internet; and if I'm connected and then disconnect the net or disable the network card, it works immediately. I checked the program's network activity and I found it connects to 0.0.0.0:xxxx and waits on some sort of response from there and if that connection is broken, the program resumes working. Any help will be appreciated!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
