bridge cs5: startup took over 10 seconds

bridge cs5 dialog: "startup took over 10 seconds". well, my 1-core 2-thread xp machine takes over 5 minutes to start up. you have to give a machine time to start up and give apps time to load. you can't put these kinds of time limits in (if it fails to load in 30-60 minutes the system is probably thrashing virtual memory incessantly and you should probably quit). some older or vista systems with wireless take 20 minutes to boot because of a bug in the OS (which means that adobe's license thing could have a real problem on vista SP1? laptops for 15-20 minutes). also, you can't assume adobe apps are "first in line" for startup.

I switched from bridge cs4 to bridge cs5 in master collection on a 32-bit system (it defaulted to cs4 for seemingly no good reason). cs4 was started up just fine. I switched the startup script over to CS5. it worked once or twice I think. after that it started having problems and refused to load automatically. I have a 32-bit XP system. This should not be happening, because I can start Bridge CS5 manually with no problem.

I have a win7ult64 i7-3970x system with same adobe cs5 master collection now, installed as 64-bit. AND, I get the same message - new installation, have latest updates and those were installed smoothly. no further updates came.

my system is hard-disk based. this 10 seconds needs to be bumped WAY UP to more like 15 minutes for old xp boxes (yes, they will still be around despite MS 2014 EOL date).

thanks.
at best, my hard-disk-based i7-3970x takes about 5 minutes to load windows, even with all drivers installed in order.

please fix. thanks. I "revealed" my startup scripts for bridge, and there were none, strangely enough. I don't understand. what's going on?
