When saving an Outlook attachment to a shared Windows folder, CPU usage reaches 100% and does not decrease.


CPU usage at 100% - No error messages


Windows 7 64-bit

PGP Desktop 10.1.2

Outlook 2010

Windows shared folder


This can be caused by a conflict with the PGP NetShare component.


This issue can be resolved by disabling the PGP NetShare component.

1. Open the Windows Registry Editor.

2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > WOW6432Node > PGP Corporation > PGP > set PGP_INSTALL_NETSHARE to 0

3. Unregister the PGP NetShare dll by using the following commands:

  Regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\PGPfsshl.dll

  Regsvr32 /u c:\windows\syswow64\PGPfsshl.dll
