I have the same problem with Post Road Mailer. The solution is to change
the priority of the DES Challenge program to IDLE +1 instead of IDLE +31.
IDLE +1 will prevent CPU performance monitors from interfering with DES
Challenge and stealing cycles. With IDLE +0 pulse.exe will eat up 50% of
the CPU cycles!
