I Fixed 4 Problems - CPU Usage 100%, AB Not Responding, Tab Rendering & AFfrmOpalBottom Lockup

I fixed the 4 main problems I was having with Avant!

I'm a software engineer and decided that enough was enough, so I got some Mountain Dew, sat down and focused for a few hours. Here are the soulutions I found:

Problems 1. & 2. CPU Usage 100% & AB Not Responding Lockup:

These 2 problems were by far the worst of the 4. In Tools -> IE -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Accelerated graphics, I checked the "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering*" box. This fixed both problems and the browser is finally running at the proper speed and not bogging down or locking up. YouTube videos used to slow browsing down to a crawl and they run fine now.

Problems 3. & 4. Multiple Tab Window Border Rendering & AFfrmOpalBottom Lockup:

The border rendering problem (see "Red Wings" tab window border above) has frustrated me for over 2 years. I decided to check the version of my video card driver on the NVIDIA website and the page told me I needed to upgrade my version of JAVA. Upgrading to the latest version of JAVA fixed both problems, although I'm not sure why. I'm certainly not going to question it.


I haven't had a single lockup in 24 hours. AB used to lock every 10-15 minutes. I passed this info along to friends having the same problems and it worked for them too. Avant is usable for me again!!!

Good thing you solved it, maybe it's a solution for other users also.

There's even a fix for it, though it's only a matter of checking or unchecking an option like you did.
