Recently had some issues with crashing on 2016 R2 X64edition toad for oracle, routine crashes and high system utilization before any connections were even established and frequent crashing and locking up. It had worked normally in the past just in the past few weeks it started to really bog the system down.
Several co-workers had updated or were running release 14.0 (2020R2x64) , so I decided to download and install the newest version. Originally I tried to just install the new version so that it would update and keep the existing connections which seemed to be true but I was still seeing the exact same behavior just after launching Toad I was seeing 2.5-3gb of ram being utilized before I even connected to anything.
I thought the old version could still be causing some issues so I closed everything down uninstalled 2016 R2 X64 (made a export of connections so I wouldn't loose those) then uninstalled it restarted. Now launching with only 14.0 (2020R2x64) installed I see the same thing again 2.5-3gb of ram usage and almost 10% cpu on idle. Clicking on anything causes anything to freeze and Toad to lock up.
I feel like maybe some config related piece or perhaps registry key is corrupt or stuck from the 2016 R2 installation and got carried over when i tried to re-install 14.0 (2020R2x64) ?
I can certainly provide screenshots and or versions (oh and this is running on windows 10 enterprise) I'm just at a complete loss at the moment of what else I can try, and would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions!
