Windows app dramatically slows down PC

PK

After a lot of experimenting, I've established that the Todoist Windows app dramatically slows down my PC. This is particularly noticeable when switching between programs, opening new documents and opening new web pages. Task manager says that todoist is using ~80Mb of RAM, which seems higher than necessary for such a simple program, but even that doens't explain the effect (Skype and Firefox use much more RAM but don't have the same effect). I also don't see much in the way of CPU usage. Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

Hello Paul,

Please tell me:
- How many tasks do you have on your Todoist account?
- What version of Windows are you using?
- What's the specification of your computer (CPU, RAM, in particular)?


Best regards,
David

Hi David,
About 50 tasks (I'm in the process - I think - of switching from another product, so not many tasks).
Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
Lenovo G560
Intel i3 M380 2.53 GHz
4GB RAM

Paul,

Thank you for this information. It's not possible that such small amount of tasks could slow down this computer. We've tested the app with thousands of tasks and very slow machines and we haven't experience any performance issues.

Please make sure that there aren't any anti-virus or other security apps running which may have an issue with the fact that our app connects to the internet to sync your tasks.


Best regards,
David
