    well I don't think you have a Bridge issue

     

    check and see what video codec packages you have installed/running

     

    ffdshow is a video codec installed with K_lite and some other packs, you need to disable that ffdshow from auto starting

    if you run a few videos it makes huge files and never shuts down - in the alt control delete (task  manager)  look in running processes and see if you see multiple svchost running. one or two is normal

     

    Many running will overload your memory and Bridge needs a lot of memory to read your files when it opens

     

    also try opening a folder with fewer images first- if you open a huge folder first it does take long to load (drag folder to Bridge icon)

     

    I am talking PC of course and I dont run 64 so someone lese may have a better suggestion

    after you shut off ffdshow- restart - that should clear the instances of svchost

     

    other programs also create these files so it is not possible to know which to mess with

    Not sure if this forum is still active however I am a CS4 user who had the same issue with Bridge. Option 1 of the solution(s) suggested popped me right in. THANKS!!!  Been down for weeks.
