I found the problem!

I was having this exact same issue. Any time I would turn on terminal monitor on Cisco devices, or try to 'cat' any of my log files on my Linux syslog server, SecureCRT would completely freeze. I would get a beach ball, the CPU would peg, and my fan would go crazy. Usually the only way out of this was to force close the app.

It turns out the problem was that I had keyword highlighting on. As soon as I turned it off for that session, the problem went away. I don't know if this is something that they can address or not. Hopefully so.

For reference, you can enable/disable this for each session here: Session Options > Terminal > Appearance > Highlight keywords Setting that to "none" alleviated the problem for me.
