When my Video Download Folder open and i am downloading alot of Video Content, MC need 100% CPU-Power of one CPU-Thread. It seems this is a Refresh-Glitch. Refreshing should not cause so much CPU Usage.

I have need seen any issue. But it depends on your system and how much the FileSystem is updated. If the FileSystem is triggerd for refresh constantly it need to rescan and do lots of stuff. Getting icons if needed, color items. sort data and such. and depending on AV some AV is hook into a process and their work is shown in process they hook them self into.
I don't think MC doing 100% cpu on one thread, MC is actually using multiple threads when scanning.

Also MC is trying to do everything as fast as possible that result on higher CPU for a shorter time instead of doing it slower and using less CPU under a longer time.

You can do":UnwatchFolder  <Folder path>" in the command line field to force a path not to be monitored for changed and then you need to do a manual refresh to get it activated
or type ":autorefresh 0" to disable all auto refreshes

Or you can disable item colors and icons to make the refresh do less work

Thank you very much for your answer. I disabled the icons (yes thats a good setup for me and i will keep it forever) and now it need 0,4& CPU instead of 6%.:) Sorry, 100%/thread was a bad estimation.
