Some applications open too late

Hi,

I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. Recently some programs such as iTunes and VLC player open 15 minutes later after i double click their icons and iTunes works really slow. But other applications like chrome opens normally or winamp.

Any idea about how to fix this problem?

Thanks

Try uninstalling, cleaning the registries and reinstalling the software that works poorly. Also check you PC for viruses and malware periodically.

I and most here do not recommend fooling with the registry unless you have a very good knowledge of Windows 7 registry. Some programs that clean registry do more harm than good. Like Hellraiser posted, removing program and reinstall could help.
Please fill in you computer specs so we can help you better. Look at the lower left of my post and you will see what I mean.

Some times finding the problem and fixing allows a person to learn so it doesn't happen again. It's always up to the owner of the PC.
