Latency checker is designed as a driver response test and not a load test. You run it on a bare desktop, not with applications running to get a baseline.
If it works fine at desktop, but shit goes south when you open an application, you take it up with the application developer. Well, you delve into the application and disable anything that calls back, or is likely to hog the system resources... and then when that fails, you take it up with developer.
Either way, you don't thrash it like that!
T.B.H I'd expect any anti-virus that does in-depth heuristic scanning like Norton to error the result which is why I tend to no advise them on an audio box. If that's the only thing that's tipping the rig over the read, you can be pretty sure it's working as intended.
