O.P. Sad  WLM excessive CPU usage
please bear through the wordiness of this post.

ever since i installed Messenger Plus, my WLM has around 50% CPU usage, and it doesn't stop, and i'm not using it actively (i have one window open, but minimized). why is it eating so much memory when its minimized? it is really irritating to try to use my already slow laptop, but its even more irritating since an application that used to use very little CPU is now draining half my resources and making the usage of my system difficult. only when i close every window does it stop using cpu, which is really bad as the basic messenger doesn't eat many resources when windows are open (it can use zero when you have stuff minimized and somehow, Messenger Plus cannot), so if i want to chat while doing a little bit of work or gaming on the side, it's very difficult to leave a chat window open while i go and do my work as this will cause other applications to freeze up, thanks to my now memory-hoarding msn messenger.

I hope someone can find a solution to the problem, because my computer might not be able to take it anymore... :(

~1995 MHz AMD Mobile Sempron, 896 MB RAM (i know its really little but its a 3 year old laptop)

Windows XP SP3

WLM version 14.0.8089.726

Messenger Plus version 4.83.0.374

Scripts:
NameEditor
Pokemsn

(is it the scripts that are causing the lags? and if so, can you specify which one? the pokemsn one is funnnnn) :P

also it mostly eats CPU when in chat windows, on the main WLM window it eats only ~25% when open and doesn't when minimized

but chat windows eat the CPU whether open or minimized

and its a laptop, buying more ram/cpu or upgrading processor won't work, i'll have to replace the whole motherboard which is expensive :(
