Newsleecher won't start

Just got Windows 10, and Newsleecher won't start. I've start starting it in Windows 7 compatibility mode, since it works fine in win7, but no juice.

It's just sitting there, consuming 100% CPU on one core. It's consuming zero disk or network activity. Memory usage stays the same. It just eating horsepowers for... something.

This is a fresh install of Newsleecher 4.0 on a clean install of Windows 10.

Any ideas?

Corrupt file in AppData\NewsLeecher most likely. Close NL, rename the folder, try and start it again.

It could be a compatible issue with Windows 10. Try Newsleecher latest version.

I was running version fine on versions 7.6 or version 7.7. I have got two computers, one running 7.6 and the other on version 7.7. I am keeping the 7.6 machine because it runs fine. I work on the principle of, if it works fine , don't touch it.
The 7.6 version is the standby computer, in case that version 7.7 bums out on me. Up to press I have had no problems with 7.7.

On a fresh install?

Sorry, missed the bit where you said clean install of WIndows 10.
That's really odd. NL just works for me. If you are using NL 4 though it simply may not be compatible.
I am using the latest beta, are you not able to use that?

Hi Thany.
You need the newest beta version which is compatible with windows 10 - it's free to use.
