When you are running Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) on your server, you may experience slow performance on the WINS Server.

NOTE: The Wins.exe file may use a large amount of the CPU time.


This issue can occur if you are running a WINS Server with several replication partners.

Under certain circumstances, a time interval within the WINS service could become zero (0).
