Hi guys.

Is it normal that my EOS utility operates so freaking slow when moving on the menus, displaying options, changing things?! .. for example, when im about to import photos from the Camera to the PC, I have to wait tons till the BROWSE option is displayed for browsing the desired folder.. so as changing tabs =(! ..

is it me only?!

Not really, the application seems to respond fast here and i run Win 7 x64 Ultimate. Perhaps it's your system that's messed up. Try cleaning it, uninstalling some crap and running CCleaner (free app, google it) then reinstall your EOS Utility and see if that helps.

Agreed with Magnus, mine runs quite fast on my Win7 x64.

It sounds like it may be hanging while it's communicating with your camera, but that's just guess. Try a card reader for a quick and easy fix.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

in related news I need to install the eos utility compatible with my 1d2, but I don't have the original disk and canon doesn't have an install package that isn't an update. Worst software policy EVER.

Agreed. The 3 Windows 7 Software downloads on Canon Gateway
http://www.canon.co.uk …aspx?type=downl​oad&page=1 (external link)
include 2 Zoom Browser updates and Picture Style Editor. Nothing about drivers for EOS utility...

Any ideas on how to get the Windows 7 version of EOS Utility?

Thanks, Andy

Select the newest camera on the website and look at its download section. It may be the case that Canon's main purpose in not including older downloads was to ensure that no camera's download section would include a link to software that doesn't support it...but as far as I know only the oldest cameras might not be supported (I think that's the case for Nikon, anyway). It certainly looks like a sneaky way to promote upgrades even when your camera is still fine...

No idea what OP's issue might be. I would be very careful with CCleaner, it's got some settings that can do a fair amount of trouble without you knowing it. I've gone back and forth on whether its registry option is worth anything, and I'm back to feeling OK about running it without too much worry. I'm not sure what good that part does most of the time, though.

By the way, Piriform's Defraggler and Recuva are very helpful for photographers (and for people in general).

How much RAM do you have?
How much is available when you open the EOS utility?
How much garbage is running in the background?

Card readers are not a fix all. I hate to see them always recommended as there can be problems with them as well.

If you haven't already, grab a free copy of Ad-aware and scan your system. It's free malware detection software and one of the best. If you have kids, you probably have malware.

Second, check what is starting up. Many start up programs eat up a ton of RAM and are really not needed.
1. click start
2. type "msconfig" (no quotes) in the search bar
3. go to "start up" tab

Anything you see that is crap, uncheck. If it looks funny, Google it. Anything that looks like a chipset utility or driver utility, leave checked. Anything that you need for special options such as a keyboard or audio, leave checked.

Don't worry, it will not screw up your system. It doesn't remove anything, it just keeps it from starting automagically. If you need something back, go back and check it.

I will second what Edwin said...be careful with CCCleaner. It can screw things up, especially if you don't know what you are doing or haven't backed up the registry before running it. I have seen it remove critical things which required a Windows repair. (not Windows OS files per se, but things that had hooks into Windows and caused problems when removed)
