Bisq hanging

Dear all,

my bisq finally starts after switching off my VPN.
I am running Windows 10 and no issues with antivirus or firewall.
I can see the offers and use bisq normally.
I let it run approximately a couple of hours and it hangs. No errors, but it is just unresponsive, not redrawing the window and the menus do not work anymore. This happened to me with previous versions too. I see the CPU usage going up at 25%, memory used heavily by bisq, and no response.
What can I do?

Are you on Matrix?

If so it would be useful for you to send me a copy of your logs to review.

Bisq is pretty resource hungry for both RAM and CPU.

Are you using the latest version of Bisq 1.9.12?
