    ilok / PACE slows down CPU to a crawl (i9-7900)

    I'm a Premiere editor looking into adding Media Composer to my toolset. I've used it before but decided to download MC | Free to get a better feel for it before going to the full subscription. I was confused when I saw you had to install iLok in order to use the "free" version of MC, but in a sense I'm glad it did so I could run into this issue before paying for it. 

    Once installed, I restarted my computer and the whole computer was going so slow that if it went any slower it'd just be frozen. I checked the processes tab in Task Manager and saw PACE was using the most CPU. Sure enough, as soon as I ended the process everything began running silky smooth. I checked if my anti virus software was causing iLok to slow things down, since I saw that it was also taking up a decent amount of my CPU while PACE was running, so I tried adding exclusions/exemptions as well as disabling it temporarily, but to no avail. Here's my basic system info, but I do have the full .nfo file if necessary:
