BTW what issue do you have with the service and child process running all the time?
They are not using much memory when doing nothing or any cpu.
WindowBlinds, WindowFX etc all work in the very same way. A service and a process running.
Well, I guess , if everything I install does the same, then what? I mean, if I had my way, WindowBlinds, and WindowFX wouldn't have any running processes while unloaded. Where is the line drawn? How much is too much?
One of the reasons we users "customize" our rigs is to have it look good, work well, AND have it run fast. Given, a few things running all the time isn't so terrible, but if all software did that, medium to low end rigs would slow down.
I like having control of what runs and what don't. Especially if I'm not using it.
When I turn something off, I would prefer it to be off.
It's just me, I guess.
