Windows 7: Windows 7 - Applications taking very long to start up

Windows 7 - Applications taking very long to start up

Hi all,

Recently I've encountered a strange problem; it's not reproducible but happens from time to time.

When I attempt to open an application (be it opening a PDF (Adobe Reader), or firing up Chrome), the mouse shows the spinning icon beside the pointer, but the application does not start up. This can take up to a minute before the application fires up.

When I check the Task Manager for my application, I see that the appliation starts, but only takes up 100kb of memory, and stays that way for a while before increasing, and that's when the application loads.

Any ideas?

Did you try re-installing the app? If that didn't work, try running chkdsk /f, disk defragmentation (i recommend Puran Defrag) and memory diagnostic.

It's most likely because of Kaspersky Close it and try.
