Super Sluggish UI, CPU at 50+ as when opened

Greetings Gurus, I'm having a major issue with OPUS on XP.
The UI becomes totally unresponsive and CPU usage hovers around 50-60% from the time the app starts.
I don't have folders sizes set to auto or anything like that.

I disabled all plugins except the text file handlers, seems to be working a LOT better.Thanks,I'll do the fine tuning later to determine the precise culprit. Never had this type of issue before, all of a sudden super slow.
