Re: NVDA 2021.1 Beta 1 is now available

Well, memory usage is about 9% and CPU idles at 0% so I'm not thinking there is anything significant going on. The fans are nice and quiet too.

I am running Malware Bytes Premium, but if that is interfering with NVDA, that would be a first here. I've never had that problem. Anyway, I'll try disabling Malware Bites and running the installer again.

Could there be something else hogging resources on your PC Chris?  Between web pages not displaying and the launcher not working - have you checked what else is running?

Also, are you running any anti-virus software?  It's often worth disabling that before installing new software.

yep, that page opens here now too.

Strangely though, when I hit Enter on the installer, my computer fan speeds up for a couple of seconds as if it's doing something, and then the installer disappears. Nothing else happens. LOL

This is using Windows 10 Pro, version 10.0.19042, on an Intel i& 9700K with 8 cores at 3.6 gHz, 32 GB of ram

I think I'll just wait for beta 2.
