Dear Experts,

I'm using vmware workstration 7.1.1, I have created 1 VM with 8 Cores for CPU and some resource.

But when I try to zip a file 500MB, the CPU of VM is 100% usage and hang.
Otherwise physical PC's CPU usage is 2 - 4%, and if I do the same task zip the same file in physical PC, the CPU usage also is only 2 -4%

Could you explain where is the problem and how to fix it.

PS: tested with vmware workstration ver8 -> same sistuation
Thanks all.
