Bootup Times Windows 11

I have the Creative Cloud photography plan and currently have installed Adobe Lightroom Classic, Photoshop (both the release and Beta versions), and Acrobat Reader. My PC runs on an Intel i5, 64MB RAM, and Windows 11. I use JV16 Powertools to keep the registry as clean as possible. My anti-virus is from ESET. My VPN is NordVPN. All of these are fully up-to-date. My boot drive is a Samsung 970 EVO 1TB SSD.

One of JV16's functions is the ability to see how long it takes for your PC to start and which programs (I refuse to call them apps!) are slowing down that process. Today, that time was nearly two minutes, and 93-94% of that time was due to various Adobe programs, and this is about as bad as it has ever been. Normal times as of late range from 79-90 seconds. On this PC with a reformatted c:\ drive and a fresh Windows 11 installation, this took 39 seconds.

Do these sound like normal bootup times? Is there something I can do to improve them short of upgrading my CPU to an i7 or i9?

do you have adobe's sync paused?  if not, do so.

 

make sure you update your cc app because adobe recently "streamlined" its background processes.

My catalog is almost 10Tb, so I have never used Adobe sync. I do backup with Carbonite, which is listed in the programs that slow booting, but it represents 2-4% vs Adobe's 90%+.

This was helpful since it led me to find a setting I had never seen. I had explored the preferences in Lightroom and Photoshop pretty thoroughly, but I had never noticed the settings in the Creative Cloud program. I was forced to (shudder!) read Adobe's instructions on how to do this. It was pretty clear once I knew it existed.

Subsequent to pausing the sync in CC, JV16 reported a substantial reduction in the Adobew startup overhead. I've only done it once, but it showed a reduction from almost two minutes this morning to 69 seconds where Adobe accounted for roughly 25% of the delay compared to 93% before. Thanks for the help. On to the next problem!
