After 2hours , everything returns to normal and the applications no longer hang. If i try to convert 100 or more books, all applications including calibre hang and after 5-6 hours, a message pops up that calibre is no longer working and that i should shut it off. Typically any conversion that is more than 50 books will cause all applications to hang immediately and many hours later eventually a message will pop up saying that calibre is not working. I'm a newbie and not sure what information to provide. Pls let me know I'm tried switching off my antivirus but that does not help. I have no idea what to do. Would really appreciate it if someone could help me. I'm using a 32 bit system with windows 7 home by the way.
That's not a 'Hang"
That's your system gasping for spare CPU cycles
Conversions are intensive use of CPU and I/O

Win 7 on a 32 bit machine . IMHO That puppy needs to be maxed-out in RAM. Tame your Anti-virus to Ignore Calibre program Directory AND your Library folder (Note that The A/V normally scans your book before it is imported and the downloaded Calibre program before it is installed. Moving the book into a Library/converting needs no further scans.)

In Calibre; Preferences; Behavior; Set Job priority to LOW, that will let other processes function a bit.
