Win 7 Startup (With Microsoft Image Composite Editor) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) 1.4.4 (64 bit) and was very impressed.

    However, since installing, I have noticed that Windows seems to take ages to start up. The welcome screen appears in about the normal time but once I log in, the screen goes black for about a minute and only then does the desktop appear.

    The PC is running Win7 Pro 64 bit, core I7 (2nd gen), 16GB of 1600MHz ram, 240GB Sandisk Ultra SSD, Nvidia GT550 MSI 1GB video card. Normally from switch-on to ready to use is about 40 seconds and is now almost 2 minutes.

    I wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced similar issues (assuming ICE is the cause which seems likely as the start-up problem started immediately after installing it) and how they fixed it (if at all possible).

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
