    Default Severe Lag Issue


    I'm experiencing extreme lag on my comp when I'm using HM2. The software is taking up to 10 minutes to load, and playing is virtually impossible. HM2 was working fine, I was running a virus scan and playing at the same time, but i was experiencing standard lag, so i tried to shutdown malware bytes and my task manager stated not responding, so i had to turn off my comp by taking the battery out. Since then the lag has stated happening.

    Please help!

    1) Please make sure you are installing on an administrator account and running as an administrator.

    2) Please turn off UAC.

    3) You'll need to add:
    - hmupdate.exe (only exists during update)
    - holdemmanager.exe
    - hudfuncapps2.exe
    - postgres and pg_ctl, your poker client .exe
    - table ninja.exe
    - tablescannerdllloader.exe
    - and notecaddy.contents.dll from the modules folder in holdemmanager's program files folder (you might have to type in the names in some firewalls, they do not show)

    to the exceptions list in your firewall and antivirus. ****

    4) Make sure that windows is fully updated. Keep checking for updates until it says twice five minutes apart that there are no more updates available.

    5) You need to make sure that this folder*,

    8/7/Vista: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\HoldemManager\

    XP: C:\Documents and Settings\User_name\Application Data\HoldemManager

    as well as c:\postgresql (or c:\programfiles\postgresql), c:\programfiles\holdemmanager2, c:\hm2archive, c:\hmarchive and your site's hand history folder are each not read only** and that all permissions are set to full for your user name. ***

    * You will need to show hidden files. See this tutorial for showing system and hidden files:

    See the location here for win 7:

    See the location here for win xp:

    ** You will need to right click the folder, open properties. At the bottom in Attributes, uncheck the Read-Only. The folder will continue showing read only after that, this is an issue in Windows

    *** This is in Properties as well, in Security.

    ****Please see this guide for Windows Firewall:

    Please see this FAQ for setting permissions and unchecking read only:

    Please duplicate the issue.

    Open Control Panel - System - Administrative Tools - Windows Event Viewer's - Windows Logs - Applications.

    Check for any errors and send the information by saving the error. They should be right at the top. We need errors, not information.

    Please send a log file as well.

    would the lag have anything to do with this alert I had received via the HM2 software

    i have over 100GB free space out of 600GB

    100 should be fine. Do you have another disk that's fuller? Maybe a restore partition?

    We need the log and EVT files.
