Calibre 0.7 too slow and unresponsive
I really need a good ebook manager and Calibre is the obvious choice. The problem is that it doesn't work at all.
After installing, I run the program and try to choose a folder for my library (welcome screen). Everything (including other applications) totally stops functioning after like 2-3 secs and I have to shut it down via task manager.
I have a crappy PC with 512 MB ram and P4 3.0 GHz CPU but I guess that shouldn't be the problem. I mean such program aren't supposed to be that demanding.

512M is a little weak for Windows XP and above, you are going to swap to disk (slows things down) if you have other stuff open.
There is quite a bit of Calibre house building once you answer the questions.
Wait it out, it is a one time (high resource) process.
Also, Calibre checks with home to see if there is a newer version, that has to reply or time out (can take minutes).
Anti-virus scanning of the new files (constructing the library) will eat CPU.
You might consider excluding the assigned Library folder (books come in from other folders, that should still be scanned).
