I've been using foobar for a long time. This is a great program. Unfortunately...

Problem: Sometimes, random disk usage 100% - 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours after starting the application (I do not know exactly). System working very slow (e.g. saving word documents) - helps only restart foobar.
Screen: http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/643/schowek01uw.jpg
After restart foobar is fine (http://img803.imageshack.us/img803/9444/schowek01mo.jpg), but problem appears from time to time.
System: Windows 8 x64
Sound card: SB Audigy SE, official drivers
Foobar version: 1.1.16
Playback Formats: mainly flac and wav, mp3
Plugins: http://imageshack.us/a/img834/2935/schowek01fw.jpg
Active DSP: http://imageshack.us/a/img84/9766/schowek02qv.jpg
Observations: The problem began to appear only on Windows 8. Foobar worked great on Windows 7.

Please help - thanks.

How much RAM does the computer have?


How much memory does foobar2000 use when the problem occurs?

The answer is above...

More specifically, is the computer swapping when the problem occurs?

I don't understand. The computer always uses the swap if enabled.

You also said you tried with a fresh installation and you had the same problem, did the "fresh installation" included your components and DSPs? Can you try to run the same test without the mslive component?

ehh... the answer is above: "Of course, I tested a clean foobar (with default plugins, no dsp)"

This happens only with long wav files - after 2-4 hours. I listen to music a long time - foobar is enabled all day. But I have to continue testing.
As I wrote above. The problem has only foobar. Other applications work fine e.g. AIMP. The whole system works fine and reliably.
