what version of FrostWire are you running @menacestag1 ?
Please check your Internet Protection Software, some antivirus suites have Firewalls built in which might be blocking some of the sites FrostWire uses.
Also make sure that FrostWire isn't be…
I clicked on frostwire in the taskbar, and guess what? The cpu usage spiked upto 27%, it was staying up.
This happens because when you make the window visible the entire user interface is rendered and refreshed every 1 second, so it takes CPU. …

you should check the Windows Firewall settings.
If it's turned on, make sure it has FrostWire as one of the apps that's allowed to open connections.
If this is not the case, maybe you installed some sort of internet protection app or antivirus tha…
the entire deskop, let it run, take the screenshot.
Only have visible the Task monitor and keep FrostWire minimized.
What I want to see is, if possible a graph of the CPU consumption by frostwire to see if there's a pattern that repeats every ofte…

@Neuk2015 in the meantime, please try these installers which have no offers whatsoever
Hi Neuk2015, thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Are you on Mac or Windows, so we can test the installers properly?
You should be able to skip offers and your browser preferences should not be changed, if we find an installer is doing those…
can you show me a screenshot of the tool that says the app is using that much CPU.
I've just run a java profiler on it, I was seeding 10 torrents and if I don't switch to the FrostWire window and let it be, CPU doesn't even touch 2% for me
@aq2012 no need to call me Mr. although I'm getting old...
Here's the new installer, you're the first person to know about it besides me, so if you read this shortly, you might be the first person after me to install it in the whole wide world.
@aq2012 I think I know what it might be.
FrostWire periodically (every 20 seconds) checks if your connection is going through a VPN tunnel.
The check is done to display the status on the bar at the bottom, to warn you if your connection is private…
All I can say for now is that given you have an i5, the operating system probably queues up a bunch of operations between processes. By the time it switches to FrostWire, specially if you have the windows in focus, it does need to use some CPU.
it's most likely processing DHT queries, tracker queries, it's a p2p app.
If you switch windows, move the window, it will use more CPU.
Also every 1 second the entire user interface is refreshed to reflect any possible changes in the states of the…
will investigate on my end without any transfers and see what I can find. Thanks for bringing this to our attention as the same library is used on android and we can't afford extra cpu cycles there as it can kill precious battery life.
if this cpu activity drops after a couple minutes, this might be FrostWire downloading and seeding the last update. Other than that it might be FrostWire checking existing downloads (even if they're stopped or seeding FrostWire needs to check the in…
@Stevieg1024 did you try the latest version of FrostWIre?
We just released a new one last thursday
Please try that one but instead of launching it with the regular executable icon, go into your Start menu, then…
looks like your computer is reaching its end of life. 10.6.8 (we're like at 10.12.x these days) is not supported by newer versions of FrostWire, this is why you get no results and why we keep working on new ones, everything moves forward and we're a…
