Display fusion and Clipboard fusion freeze my PC

Lukasz Przenioslo

Hello there,
I am using a Windows 10 based laptop. I have noticed that both Clipboard and Display Fusion programs freeze my PC for 1-2 secs whenever they are turned on. The same happens when I open the Display Fusion settings from the tray: The loading "blocks" in the left bottom corner keep freezing- then finally the settings menu shows up. It will freeze again for a sec after I save the changes.

It is interesting to see a similar behavior in both Binary Fortress applications. What could be the cause of this issue? It is very irritating. I would appreciate all help!

I tried to run the *.exe file via command line with Priority set to /Low, but that only extended the time for which the app turns on and made it freeze the PC for longer...

More interesting info: I have removed the current Clipboard fusion and installed this one: https://www.clipboardfusion.com/OldVersion/
Does not freeze my PC and works very fast... I would appreciate all help.

I now went up to Clipboard Fusion version 5.5.1- it also works correctly...

I need to keep looking for previous versions on CLipboard and Display fusion on some 3rd party websites- is there an official place where I can manually check each previous versions (portable would be best for testing)?

Hi Lukasz,

If you turn on "Disable System Hooks (Shell)" in the advanced settings in both applications, does the issue persist after a restart?

Thanks!

Hi and Thank you for the answer,
Unfortunately did not help (tested on Clipboard fusion). Currently I am using Clipboard fusion version 5.6 and Display fusion 9.3. They both not only not freeze my PC, but I think they also work faster than the newer versions (load faster etc.).

Hi Lukasz,

Interesting, I've attached links to the versions in between 5.6 and 5.9.1. Can you try those out and let me know how they work?

Thanks!

Hi Owen, so:
- 5.9.0: freezes,
- 5.8.0: freezes,
- 5.7.0: does not freeze the PC.
So the changes done in the 5.8.0 ver had to include the issue.

Can we do the same exercise for Display fusion?

But these are new versions. Can you provide the previous versions? Or is there something you suspect might fix the problem in the next versions?

Hi Lukasz,

You mentioned v9.3 is working for you correct? These are the versions from 9.3 up to our latest version v9.9, so you should be able to test them one by one to see where it broke.

Thanks!

Correct, my bad, sorry.
So I started with installing v9.8 and went down until it stopped freezing. I ended up with 9.6. So I have noticed that the difference between 9.6 (non freezing) and 9.7 (freezing) is the new splash screen when opening settings. Issue is that the PC freezes not only on settings opening, but also at program starting. It might be a similar case for Clipboard fusion (splash screen differences).

Hi Owen,
Any feedback on the case? The devs are on track what could be the issue ?

Hello,
Sorry for the late answer- this version works correctly! What was changed? Can we do the same for the Display fusion app?

Thanks!

Can I please have a link for 10beta11? Can you please consider pinning a thread with the last few running betas, for the (somewhat frequent) case we get a bad beta (10beta12 in my case) and need to roll back? Thanks!

Yes I confirm, none of the new betas fixed my problem, I need to rollback to the old versions...

Just to clarify, ClipboardFusion v5.8 Beta 1 and DisplayFusion v9.7 Beta 19 still had issues? Rolling back to v5.7 and v9.6 work again?

Thanks!

Thanks!

If the other 9.7 betas tested earlier had no improvements, one of these should tell us where the problem lies.

Okay so if I have this right:

DisplayFusion 9.7 Beta 4 works fine, but Beta 5 doesn't

ClipboardFusion 5.7 works fine, but 5.8 Beta 1 doesn't

Is that correct?
