I have had that happen to me in the past on my old laptop, but never on my Desktop.
Its not PowerSDR itself causing the issue.
Usually it clears itself after cycling power to both the PC and the Radio.

You can also check for IRQ conflicts (for a 3000 or 5000) per my webpage.
You can do a setup->factory default (it saves you current database to your desktop first)
After that, if it still does not clear up, you can try a windows "System Restore" to a time just prior to the last MS update.

Then follow the instructions found just below the GREEN incremental download button on my webpage.
That is uninstall, then manually wipe out all the folders.
Then install the the Full and incremental over again.

Did the above instructions from Darrin solve the problem?
I'm experiencing the same problem with no waterfall where everything was working previously.

Usually if everything else is fine, but no waterfall, then shut down, reboot your PC and cycle power to your radio.
That will usually reset the waterfall.

If you find that the CPU% or Temp value is messed up, there is a different procedure.
