    Hi all,

    So here’s my problem:

    I used to be running wordpress 2.5,
    Upgraded tot 2.5.1 using the tutorial http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress.
    After a couple of days whenever I wanted to add media, using one of the add media buttons, The page freezes with the grey loading bar showing. (the bar itself freezes as well)

    On the server (W2k3 R2 SP2, IIS 6.0 and MySql 6) IIS uses up almost all CPU and sends a constant stream of query’s to mysql. I’ve let it running for more quite some time in the hope it would recover, but no luck there.

    -Once I close the browser, IIS returns to normal.
    -The site itself runs fine.
    -I have just over 1000 items in the media library.
    -Other instances of wordpress 2.5.1 on the same server don’t show this behaviour.
    -I’ve tried the “Image/Media Uploader problems” Sticky without sucess
    -All plugins disabled
    -Same problem if adding first item to new post/page or editing existing

    any help will be greatly appreciated,
    If you need any more info, just let me know.
