Just a quick update. There were some Windows 8.1 updates that installed yesterday and since then the problem has dissappered. Photoshop CC is now opening up straight away
My orginal problem has returned. Photoshop CC is now taking 1-2 minutes to boot up and open. This is definitely a windows 8.1 issue as it never happened in win 8. Please help????
It's not look like related with win 8.1 update bacause I am using 2 pc with win8.1 and ps cc everyday .never come up with such issue. ps cc opens in seconds (ssd)
maybe you wanna check the other options or conditions of your system..
All working again now. Some recent updates seem to have fixed the issue. Running smoothly the last month or so. Thanks
There was a Photoshop update that corrected a problem Adobe had accidentally introduced with a link that went to a network resource that is not available for anyone outside Adobe. But that was a while ago. See: Re: Photoshop CC startup slow (much harddisk access)
I've had Win 8.1 all along and never had an update cause a slowdown.
Unfortunately problems that go away on their own often return on their own. I hope that's not the case for you and that it continues to work properly.
