Running too slow

On a Mac book Pro, 2023 model with M2 chip 16GB of memory - after I upgraded to Topaz AI 3.0. It is now running so slow - it not usable.
Generating preview takes 20-30 minutes and any change to the setting can’t be done.

Topaz is version 3.03

I tried changing the file to DNG - no difference. Ran it on small JPEG, still unbearably slow

Steps to reproduce issue:

I’m running 2023 Macbook Pro M2 Max chip, 32Gb of memory - after I upgraded to Topaz AI 3.0. It is now running so slow - it not usable.
Generating preview takes 20-30 minutes and any change to the setting can’t be done. I don’t get any dialog boxes to save, alter enhancements or anything else previously present.
I can’t even find a button of any sort on the program.
I’ve totally lost the integration with LRC. I click on the Topaz program in Plug-in’s, Topaz opens and then just blocks my screen for 10 minutes. Only saves files when I try to force quit. What’s going on?

Found this old forum post from 2023 and did this. It fixed the problem

I am back to running. It is video that walks you step to fix it.

Good luck
