I have Apache installed on a Windows Server 2008 computer which I use for LAN purposes only (my firewall blocks port 80 to the outside world). I suddenly noticed that both the server and a Windows 7 box are CRAWLING for all activity (not just network related). As soon as I stop Apache all is well again. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Apache. Same issue. I tried uninstalling Apache and instead using Mongoose. Same issue. Here is my Mongoose config:
# Mongoose web server configuration file.
# For detailed description of every option, visit
# Lines starting with '#' and empty lines are ignored.
# To make a change, remove leading '#', modify option's value,
# save this file and then restart Mongoose.
