Photoshop 2014: Pop-up Slowing Loading

While loading Photoshop CC 2014 the pop-up message shown below is displayed twice, significantly slowing the loading process. “Edwin D Hutchinson’s iMac (7)” refers to an old iMac that is no longer in use. Photoshop was deactivated on that iMac. The problem did not start with a Photoshop or OS X update or any other computer/software significant event of which I am aware.

How do I get my speedy loading Photoshop back? Thank you, Ed

That's an OS error. Somehow your preferences, or the OS prefs, are still referring to that old volume or server.

Resetting Photoshop's preferences might get rid of the reference, or you may need to trash the OS settings (which also track some file paths) in com.adobe.photoshop.plist.

Thank you for your response. I had already tried those things you suggested and unfortunately the problem persists. If you think of other things I could try I would be very appreciative if you would let me know.

Best regards,
Ed

You also could have a link (shortcut/alias) to the old volume somewhere in your presets or plugins folder.
Beyond that, you'd have to search the system for links to the old volume - they could be almost anywhere (fonts, profiles, and other OS searched locations).
