Hey all. Friend of mine referred me here to ask y'all about a little iChat issue I'm having all of a sudden. I just installed Panther the other day, and I don't recall having this problem before. Ok, iChat runs just fine regularly, I can talk to people and everyone just fine, no problems - have lots of IMs and other programs open, all is well. BUT As soon as I even just open an IM window for this one person (a person i talk to alot), iChat immediately begins using around 80-85% of the CPU (under "My Processes), and couple that with the 20+% system CPU time we've got all 100% of my processor being used. I sit here with the Activity Monitor open, and literally just watch it happen. Restart didn't work. Closing the IM window doesn't stop it. I have to fully quit iChat. What could possibly be casuing this? Never had this issue before. I'm using wireless. Could it have something to do with the connection between the 2 computers? Should I try plugging in directly to ethernet? Would a reinstall of Panther fix this maybe? I was thinking of installing Panther fresh, doing a format and whatnot. I don't think I really need OS 9. Anyway, any ideas or advice would be helpful! Thanks so much!
