    Intel® RST cause high cpu load / System process to hang on Win7 x64




      after installing RST on a almost freshly installed Windows 7 x64 the process "System" (NT Kernel & System) is getting high cpu load (50% / 1 of 2 cores) after different amounts of time which causes the System to hang randomly and system unusability. It took me like 10-15 mins just to graciously restart the system (from pressing Start - Restart until the actual restart occured which took another 5 Mins).


      I have verified that RST is the fault of this problem, since everything else I installed on this system yesterday (Atheros Lan Drivers and Aida64 Extreme) was uninstalled or reverted back. The problem persisted until I uninstalled the RST drivers.


      My System:

      Win7 x64 enGB


      Asus P5Q Pro (P45 Chipset)

      4x2GB OCZ-DDR2-800

      2xSAMSUNG HD322HJ (320GB) as RAID0 as System disk (OS+Games)

      2xWDC WD15EARS (1,5TB) as RAID1 as storage disk (only data)
