I am using the nt8 version, and my nt8 itself bogs. I do use a dos program to wipe my history before starting. I am only using 1 mbox chart, with about 4 of their indicators on it. I am also using another tick intensive chart.
I did uninstall and reinstall mbox indicators yesterday as I had a frozen mbox chart. This seems to help when that happens.

I am only sticking with nt8 as my system works and I have lost money in the past trying to go to other platforms. Eventually I will work to another as my primary. Maybe SC, MW edgeprox.

All that doesn't matter (I've done all the things suggested), it's the indicators that cause it to slow down, specifically Mgannswing. Mhistogram not as bad.

If you notice, it's during the very volatile times of the market that your charts will lag when you have those indicators on. Try taking them off and seeing how it doesn't lag say for example at NY open or right before FOMC news and then you will realize it's not your computer or internet connection etc.

I've been using the software for about a year.

Actually, people discovered the fix for Ninja slow down and that is because the CPU cores are not being used optimally. This has been shared in the trading room to improve Ninja performance. It is not the fault of MBoxWave. MBoxWave reads tick data to get delta. All indicators that read tick data use more CPU than indicators that don't. Just load Ninja's "Order Flow Cumulative Delta" and you will see that as well. People with up to date computers do not typically have any issues, and as you can see even many people replying to this thread do not have any performance issues. People using older computers might because Ninja has a recommended specification that not all traders are fulfilling. So before blaming the software, check your PC. And if you are using a laptop, disable battery saver and make sure you have your laptop in performance mode. A lot of people don't know about these things, but they do impact performance. Lastly, Mike does have a performance tuning guide for Ninja that seems to help a lot of people.

In any case, try the UnPark CPU and you can report how it helps. A lot of users reported this speeds up Ninja significantly.

Want to rectify some earlier post of mine where I complained of MboxWave slowing down my NT8. For a couple of reasons I did a total uninstall of NT8 and downloaded a fresh version.

Am slowly re-populating that with very very few indicators, downloaded fresh from vendors and FIO sources. Anyway, round about way of getting to the fact that MBOX (after a fresh download of that indy package) is now fast, does not slow down my charts and is very responsive.

I have an older i7 with SSD's + older 32 ram.....towards top of the range in 2015. NT8
Mbox works well on that older tech. This is not a promo for the vendor, just a rectification of an earlier complaint I made.
