Small update:
Just heard from another player on classic server that the procexp thread suspend also worked for him.

Attached is a thread watchdog console app. It attempts to suspend spinning threads.
It's currently coded to look for process cpu >= 100% of a single core, and thread cpu >= 50% of a single core.
It uses a warmup of 30s, and total time window of 90s.
It doesn't have to run all the time, you can wait until CPU spikes and then run it, wait for threads to be suspended, and exit.

Code is only a proof of concept. Use at your own risk. May blow up your PC, launch nuclear missiles, etc. Feel free to modify.

Usage:
ThreadWatchDogCon.exe [filter] [enable]

Ex:
ThreadWatchDogCon.exe \pol.exe true

Press enter to exit.

I had a question that I didn't know the answer. Although it's happened to me in the past and couldn't remember the solution. When loading MXI/Ashita right as the game window is about to launch the FFXI MSI installer opens.

Does anyone remember the solution? I thought it was not copying the data folder from POL to FFXI.

Ehh that usually means your install is broken. If you run regsvr32 on each of the dlls in your POL and FFXI folders, it should behave again, assuming the registry stuff is still intact.
