  • @skinux I believe @alexm didn't understand your question. I guess all you want is to keep downloading several search results without having to go back and forth between the search and transfer skins. There's a setting for this. Go to Settings &…
  • any luck @lilly654321 ?
  • 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. …
  • If you want to get NordVPN detected you can help us implement a fix very easily: Turn of your VPN In cmd.exe type "netstat -ar" Paste the output with VPN off here TUrn on your NordVPN In cmd.exe type 'netstat -ar" Paste the output with the VPN ON …

  • what do you mean "Too many ads changing too fast", FrostWire has no ads inside. Are you in Windows?
  • it might be that your search cache is way too big for your computer to handle. Go into Tools > Options > Searching > Smart Search Click on the button that says "Reset Smart Search Database" Then try doing one search at the time, you have…
  • 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…
  • @aq2012 Awesome, now please do the following: Close all apps. Start FrostWire. Minimize the FrostWire window. Open the app you use to monitor CPU Monitor/Wait for 5 minutes, do not open the frostwire window, I want to make sure it has nothing to …
  • Testing on Mac we were able to skip all the offers, simply by clicking on "Skip" and nothing was installed We'll test on Windows next.
  • @Neuk2015 in the meantime, please try these installers which have no offers whatsoever Mac http://dl.frostwire.com/frostwire/6.6.3/frostwire-6.6.3.dmg Windows http://prime.frostwire.com/frostwire/6.6.3/frostwire-6.6.3.windows.exe
  • glad to be of help, we're doing everything we can on every release to make the app perform better
  • 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
  • even without the VPN indicator on? Every how often do you notice the CPU usage? Are you seeding any transfers?
  • @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. ht…
  • Here's the fix, for our next build. https://github.com/frostwire/frostwire/commit/1d5ce7149d38cb72c80efe05467e9fb682ad7f41 Stay tuned for the update message @aq2012 Let's hope this is the issue.
  • I'm going to add a fix on which the VPN check does not occur if that VPN Status button is hidden, then we'll be able to test for sure if this is the issue you're facing.
  • @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. In …
  • since your CPU is not the strongest, I'd also recommend doing only 1 search at the time.
  • I think the i5 would explain why your CPU usage is a bit higher than mine. Still, I'm being watchful while coding and debugging to see what might be pegging the 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…
  • Here, with FrostWire's window minimized, between 1.5% to 2.8% cpu, seeding 10 files If there's activity in the window (rendering) CPU can spike up to 20-30%
  • 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…
  • are you seeding?
  • @Stevieg1024 did you try the latest version of FrostWIre? We just released a new one last thursday http://www.frostwire.com/downloads Please try that one but instead of launching it with the regular executable icon, go into your Start menu, then…
