Odd Issue on Opening

I’m having an odd issue with Scrivener on my tablet. Windows tablet, and just a couple weeks ago when the Scrivener update window popped, I updated it. But I’ve noticed something strange happening.

Sometimes, when I start Scrivener, after getting the new project/open existing project window, I select my ongoing project. It sits on that window for a long time, often giving me the “not responding” message at the top of the screen.

Then, it will open my project, but the new project window remains open, plus the Tutorial window pops as well. I can close the Tutorial, but the new project window stubbornly remains, no matter how I try to close it. When I close the entire project, the new project window will close too.

Other times, it opens up just fine. I can’t really see a pattern to it.

Alright - I’m on Windows 7 64bit and I’m having the same issue with one slight difference - If I open scrivener IMMEDIATELY after windows loads - everything is fine.

If I don’t, then it takes almost a full hour to load up - and it’s slow the entire time.

It’s obviously conflicting with something, but I don’t know what.

Honestly, it could be anything from another program to a part of windows. I have a TON of software on my computer (and I try to be relatively conservative).

In any case, please help.
