Please give me a simple example.

To begin with, close Coollector and open it again, so we have a fresh start.

Then tell me what actions you do to make the program freeze.

fresh program (just started)
press the movie title search tab
now any title with more than one word will cause the freeze
i.e. "the loft" and now press Enter
This will cause the freeze

That doesn't happen on my computer. Maybe it's a problem with your coollection file.

Please send me your coollection file so I can test it.

My email address: hector at coollector dot com

The file is "MyCoollection.cool". You'll find it with the menu "Help->Locate the coollection file".

I've installed the program on another computer with a different os (8.1 instead of a 7) with No database
same result
I run it for the first time after the install
chose the tab and entered "the loft"+Enter - the program enters an endless loop since I get circle chasing it's tail...

on a NEW install with no personal database

The only way to get out of it is kill the process

Ok, now I know... You're not running the latest version 4.4.8.

There was a bug with the previous version. With the previous version, you can stop the problem by disabling the automatic update on startup. But the best is that you update to version 4.4.8.

Sorry for the trouble :worried:

I'm very sorry to disappoint you.

I'm running the latest version of 4.4.8 (both installs were with the latest version)

The older version had on top of this bug another bug which you repaired in the latest version (4.4.8)

This bug is from one update before the other bug has manifested itself.

It's so weird that it happens to you on 2 different computers, though it doesn't happen to anyone else...

Please make sure that the title bar really displays "4.4.8".

Does it help if you disable the automatic updates, close the program, then open it again?

Please try this Coollector.exe:

http://www.coollector.com/Coollector.exe

to see if it works better.

I tried to disable updates.
It didn't resolve the issue.

I tried your downloaded version.
It didn't resolve the issue.

p.s. The fact that no one else beside me complained, doesn't mean it didn't happen to anyone else...

Of course, but it's very weird.

Right now, I'm releasing version 4.4.9. When it's done, I'll go back to you. :yes:

I don't know if this will help you - in a more than two words title like "no strings attached"

When I press the space bar between the strings and attached then I get the circle chasing it's tail this time even before the enter.
