Illustrator and InDesign take forever to load
Since 'upgrading' to CC2019, it takes about 5-8 minutes for Illustrator to open after the splash screen appears, during which time the task manager shows it using 0.8MB RAM and 0% CPU. InDesign won't even show the splash screen until after Illustrator has opened, then it takes a few minutes after the process appears, using very little in the way of resources. The total system usage at this time, for all applications, is between 8 and 34% RAM and up to about 25% CPU. Older versions did not have this problem. I have this problem on multiple systems, the weakest of which has 32GB DDR4 RAM, a Core i7 9700 CPU, and a GeForceFX 1060 GTX with 6GB VRAM, running Windows 10 x64 Pro on a Samsung 970 Pro 1TB NVME drive. Photoshop opens within about 1-2 seconds of showing the splash screen, and all programs are responsive and quick once actually opened. I have tried deleting Preferences, even going so far as to manually edit the registry, a process with which I have more than a little familiarity. The CC2018 apps did not have this problem.
