I think it has been addressed numerous times:
(e.g. here: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....amp;hl=verifier )

the "file integrity verifier" is not optimized for multicore, hence does only start 1 verification process at a time.
therefore it (for me) only uses 13 % (12,5) of the availlable CPU power.
this will only get more serious in the years to come, since multicore is something everyone nowadays has, even cellphones.
in my oppinion it should not be difficult to just start as many verification threads as core are availlable, like foobar converter does.

additionally to that: the resultwindow after completed verification is quite useless.

some kind of sorting or filtering of the results would be quite helpful.
only way to do actually something good with the results is to export them,
copy the path of the tracks in question from the exported text file,
put them in a text file, make it unicode, save as m3u8 and load it in foobar so you can "fix vbr header" and "rebuild mp3 stream"

this could all be done with a simple sorting, selecting, right click, and "fix + rebuild"
or maybe the resultwindow could directly offer e. g. to "fix vbr header" for all found tracks with "inaccurate length"

does anyone agree with me?
