I don't like to hijack someone else's thread, but could this be related to my problem ?
I don't use Gmail. The blog refers to a date in december of 2007, my problem is more recent.
I'm not sure if adding google.com to the do not warn list would be a good thing for me, I'm not sure what it would do.
The thing is, I use google, (but not google.com, instead of the .com there is a reference to my local country version of Google), it is my default search engine. I installed it that way when I installed IE 7. As I understand, it's tied to IE 7 in some way. But the weird thing is that when I mistype a URL, google.UK will try to find the website ! And while my local extension is not .com, it's not .UK either ! I have no idea why I'm stuck with the .UK thing. As my Windows XP installation CD-ROM predates service pack 2, last time I had to do a reinstall I downloaded the service pack 2 'for specialists'. (There was no specific reference to the UK). Downloading the entire service pack at once saved me about 100 reboots !
So, I'm wondering if tieing the local version of google to IE 7 could be related to my problems. :confused:
See my thread: 'Saservice stuck at 100 % CPU utilization'
dont worry about "hijacking the thread" i posted it for info only, if it helps solve someone elses problem then it can only be a good thing. you could try entering all three google doms in(.com,.uk etc) i cant see what harm it could do. if it works then ,great, if not , undo it. nothing ventured, nothing gained. maybe its a conflict of somekind between google and SA. SAService does still hit high cpu usage going to different site , but doesnt stick there, for me anyway.
The "fix" was short lived and the problem has returned, although not as frequent. It doesnt seem random though, certain sites i visit(the excellent castlecops being one), seem to provoke a reaction. SAS.exe increases its memory usage and cpu usage to 50% and stays there. I've sometimes then stopped the process via task manager(NOT something i recommend!) and almost immediately it re-instates itself at a lower memory and cpu usage.
