Re: Windows Live Gallery sucks CPU
Try it on another browser. I know Photo Gallery uses an ActiveX, but normally, it shouldn't suck all your CPU time.
There's some Problem with the Windows Live services, and even myself, I find some stupid stuff, like CPU guzzler, Unavailable service, etc.
So try another browser, like Firefox, or Google Chrome to name a few, and try it on another PC as well. It sounds like your PC is having an issue with ActiveX controls with it. It could be also be the fact that you might upload a lot of pictures as well, but that's just a guess.
