Hi Sham, thanks for writing. Unfortunately, even after clearing the .crxde folder and checking off Auto-building, the issue persists. I haven't tried removing '/etc' from the CRXDE path because I use it all the time, and that's not an option.
Is there anything else that I can do to get at the source of what's sucking up all those resources inside CRXDE?
Do you have lot of workflow instances data? Because this gets stored under etc. If so please purge it and see if it helps.
