I have problem with waterfall screen freezing up only during second week of the month. The receiver still works ok as well as the transmitter but the waterfall freezes up and then returns to normal numerous times. I noticed this problem with current version 1.7.3 and previous versions of the software on my Flex 6500. It appears that on second week of the month when my computer is downloading latest Microsoft updates aka patches for my Windows 7 64 bit operating system. Now after all the updates are installed and computer is re-booted the problem disappears and waterfall screen works great with no issues. Has anyone else noticed this issue? The computer tower has I-5 760 CPU @2.8GHZ, with 8 GB of RAM, and ATI Radeon HD 5670 video card . Sam WA6QGH

Hi Sam,
I had the same problem with my Win10. Since there is limited control over the updates, I just check for updates each time I run the computer. This gives me a chance to update before I operate.
