Hi.

I've tested this for me and my team.

My workflow involves expanding illustrator layers and working with them regularly. I've experienced these problems 

1. Slow load times - After effects takes 5-10s loading the project post launch

2. UI Freezes - If I expand all the layers in the comp, the UI freezes and doesn't recover. 

3. Scrubbing is impossible. Comp durations are small - 5s to 10s. I don't generally preview longer sections of my animations until the end of a project, there I do a ram preview or a low res render. I still can't scrub in my timeline. 

FIXES TRIED SO FAR

1. Deleting AE JUICE. - Helped, somewhat

2. Clean installing graphics driver - Helped a great deal. Made the software usable now. Earlier UI used to freeze and not recover at all. Expanded layers or not.

3. Downgrading AE - Upgraded again since 2019 versions aren't available on Creative cloud

4. Disabling MFR - Had no difference

5. Checking and updating processor drivers - Had no updates to apply. So disregarded this.

6. Cleaning cache and resetting the libraries - Helped somewhat

7. Taking all the optional updates from windows - Used to skip the optional ones until I read up on them. Did not change anything though

I'm having the same issue. AE usually runs fine on my PC, similar specs to Kartik5E40.
Files that I could open and RAM preview or scrub through without any delay or issues whatsoever are now stuttering, crawling and frustratingly slow.

Adobe, please sort it out!!
