    Hi

    I have two programs (Drive Image and Zuma) that are very slow to open (about 20 seconds). Once they did open quickly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled them but still the same. I am running XPPRO. Any idea of what has caused this?

    Thanks!!

    Many plug-ins.
    Try to disactivate "Load plug ins when program opens" or something of that effect, in the "preference" or "option" if they have it.

    But the best way is to write to them. Usualy softwares are slow because they are poorly written and too big.

    Hi Fred

    I don't believe they have plugins and they did once work just fine. Perhaps SP2 had an effect, do you think?

    Thanks!
