By “main menu” do you mean the attract config GUI menu?

Hi,
 I discovered that deactivating the flyer, marquee and snap no longer freeze or put the CPU to 100%,
 what solution do you think for, the nvidia drivers are the latest version?

Regards

Those are components of a particular theme. Always try a different theme first. Your issue with theme resources eating cpu could be related to video drivers. Update to the latest for your video card and try it again. I had an HD4350 that barely ran attract on default drivers. Downloaded the latest and bam!

I have found if u have a corrupt file or a file conflict as like name or file type the front end loops searching and overloads resources.
You might want to check for troubles like this and win 10 could be partial Culperate.

I have renamed the menu_art folder and I have not frozen the displays menu, but the submenu(arcade.handles,consoles..etc) that catches the arts of the roms is still freezing...

Most people probably use software decoding with Windows since it was the only option until 6 months ago. The hardware decoding for Windows is only in the current 2.3 release of AM and requires ffmpeg 3.4. https://github.com/mickelson/attract/commit/abd8490b486b30b0cc6c26849f339de1bda5e99d
