Lagging and Crashing

If you are experiencing Lagging or Crashing please check below for the potential causes.

Antivirus, Firewall, Personal IPS, Anti-Spyware/Malware

In certain cases lagging and crashing has been related to active Anti-Virus or security services applications.

StocksToTrade transfers a lot of data in order to obtain stock information for every stock on the market.

If you are experiencing crashing or interface response delays please try the following steps:

  • Temporarily disable your security solution (Anti-Virus, Firewall, IPS, Anti-Spyware/Malware)
  • close and restart StocksToTrade
  • check whether the issue is resolved.

If StocksToTrade is able to run while your security solution is disabled, you will need to add an exception to it in order to allow the application to run properly.

Please refer to he online manual of your security solution for details on how to add expections/allow programs to run.
