Photoshop Lockups on Boot

Recommended Posts

I've been using Total Training's Photoshop CS trining (7 DVD's, hosted by Deke McClelland) in order to gain more knowledge about PS:CS, but I've ran into a snafu.I've found that, upon boot, Photoshop takes 7 minutes to load. During this time, it stops for a LONG time on "Finding Plugins" and "Building TWAIN Menu List...".Through much trial and error, I have found that if you ~ out the beginning of a folder name, PS will not load the contents on boot.So I renamed:C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Import-Export(which contains just TWAIN_32.8BA)toC:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\~Import-ExportAND RENAMEDC:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\AutomatetoC:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\~AutomateAND RENAMEDC:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\~Automate\Online ServicestoC:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\~Automate\~Online ServicesWith this done, PS Cold Boots in 12 seconds, and warm boots in about 6-7. (AMD XP 1800 1.5Ghz, 1024MB DDR, Windows XP Pro).I noticed that if you goto START > RUN > 'SERVICES.MSC' That the WIA (Windows Imaging Acquisition) Service is not started. WIA sounds like something PS would need to capture my Twain Compliant Scanner (Microtek SlimScan C6 US. Well, I tried to start it, but it times out, so I don't know if that's my problem or not.If I dont' ~ out any folder names, PS DOES LOAD (after 7 minutes), but when I goto FILE > IMPORT > Microtek SlimScan (32bit)..., it takes another 2 MINUTES to bring up the ScanWizard for import into PS. Once I scan, the image comes in fine. But this is just WAY TOO LONG. Something is holding it up.
