Way to Fix Racengn.dll Error
» From time to time, I found the processor running at 100% and Process Explorer told me that taskhost is running RACtask and is using all available processor resources. The only solution I've found is to kill this and then processor usage goes back to normal. Anyone got any ideas why this might be happening?
