nVidia GeForce2 GTS 32 MB DDR, Dell OEM version, adapter BIOS 3.15.0013
using nVidia's Detonator drivers current officially released version (WHQL) dated 16-May-01

The only background program that I have running during scan operations is 
Tiny Personal Firewall (3252 KB footprint in memory) which presents no 
conflicts whatsoever and is essentially inactive at the time anyway (ISDN 
connection rather than always-on). The computer isn't on a network either. 
No background copy programs, no defraggers and I don't run real-time 
antivirus either.

NS 3.1 can be observed in Task Manager while it's running. While it doesn't 
impact both CPUs very much it does claim practically all available RAM and 
virtual memory (99%!). Before I start the application there is 
approximately 670 MB of free RAM and over nearly 1 GB free unfragmented 
swapfile available to it. During the scan only a few hundred KB remain 
free. NS eats all the rest. That's just lousy software engineering.
