Which version of Windows are you using and which language edition of Windows is it?
Please try also if disabling your custom themes and switching to a built in Windows theme solves the problem.

What do you mean with too slow? How big is the file and how long does it take?

I'm using english Windows XP Professional SP3+ with Cyrillic locale, but in older version of HxD all showed just fine.
As of Statistics, analysis of 1GB file loaded from RAMdisk took ~25 seconds, but quick sketch complete this task in 1 sec.
PS. Older version also do analysis 3-4 times faster.

The time indicator in the progress window now uses Internet Explorer/Windows Shell APIs to format the time, that's why it makes a difference. I'll see what is going on.

Nothing was changed to the statistics code, but HxD is fully Unicode now, and was updated to a new Delphi version. That might have somehow affected performance. Or maybe it is due to some updates in the progress window.

Both issues were fixed. The statistics/histogram processing should now also be faster than in 1.7.7.0.

Good work Maël!
Thanks for quick response and fix.
What is quick sketch?
It's just a quick program prototype written in 5 minutes
