After installing 3.6, i have noticed that the client fails every single time i connect to a server in the following way: After showing the connection messages, the application promptly dissapears from the task bar, and in Task Manager, WinSCP3.exe is show as using 96% of the avalible CPU load.
This happens every single time without fail, so i have been forced to downgrade to 3.5.6.
I am running windows xp professional sp1.

It maybe some unusual configuration. If you can work with Windows registry, please export following key and send it to me by email:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration]

If you do not know how to do it, type following command on command-line (or to Start/Run):

regedit /s /e:a c:\winscpconfig.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration"

It will create file c:\winscpconfig.reg

There are no passwords stored in this key!

And it maybe useful to know your screen resolution. Thanks.

Same cause, same version (WinSCP 3.6 beta multilanguage installation package).

Cleaning up all five places solves problem.

Here is WinSCP3.ini, which 100% causes strange effects:

Thanks it helped.
Also, I have removed irrelevant (and possibly sensible) information from your post.
