You aren't using Sophos anti virus are you? I am and it loves to scan all the swf files associated with launching Flash at every launch. You pretty much have to disable Sophos scanning to use Flash.
Yes I am using Sophos!
Do Sophos have a feature/bug request page? This is one feature I can do without!
Thanks for your help.
You can exclude items from on-access scanning in Sophos preferences. So I've just added my Flash CS5 application folder to see if that helps.
That will help. It made launching Flash bearable on my Mac. Good luck!
