    Anyone else noticed that whenever you use Topscore, your processor gets used up 100% for no reason? I also use CrackDATPAT, Acheiver, and Kaplan programs, none of which do that at all.

    Whenever I'm using topscore, the fan on my computer stays on all the time and when I press control+alt+delete to task manager it says topscore is using 100% resources. Doesnt make sense to me since topscore is like the last type of program that would use up resources. The only programs that take up major processing power are like games with tons of graphics or programs that have to process lots of stuff. Must be some kind of bug in their program that keeps running the processor in an infinite loop with no function.

    haha that's really funny. In the past few days, I've been noticing my computer doing something weird, like thinking too much or something. It definitely seems to correlate very well with Topscore running =P
