More than 10% CPU Usage for NextDNSService.exe

I've considered updating a thread from 1 year ago, but figured a new thread would be better.

So the CPU load for this service is way too high. This thing us using more CPU than Google Chrome. If I restart my computer it's low again but after using it for a hour it will be more than 10% again.

I've re-installed the application, but the behavior is the same. DNS enabled or disabled doesn't make any difference.

Could anyone have a look? My laptop doesn't like processes like this, especially the battery ;)

    Which version is it?

    Can you please provide the log file located in the NextDNS program directory?

    I started using NextDNS just 2 weeks ago and I have the same problem as suddenly & at random times I hear my HP laptop’s fan rotating like crazy and when I check Task Manger, I always find that NEXTDNS.exe is the only app with high CPU & RAM usage over 40% with CPU running at its full speed and when I open the NextDNS app I find the status saying (disconnected) & even after closing the internet browser or any app with internet connection, NextDNS app keeps the high usage & I have to restart the Windows & I am also using up to date Nextdns app
