Lightroom Classic 10.1 recently much slower to launch on Windows 10

Running LR Classic 10.1 (automatically updated) on a Windows PC. Win 10 Pro version 10.0.19041 and all updates installed. 16MB RAM. Old NVidia GeForce GT520 graphics card with 500MB ( yes, I know).

 

In the last few weeks, LR has become slow to load fully. It shows as 90%+ CPU and as I watch the system monitor, I can see 6 instances of Dynamic Link Manager 14 load - they slowly drop off one by one and then LR is fine and CPU usage drops to nomral . Everything works OK after that.

 

Catalogue optimised and on big SSD with images. Other performance options set to make it run more quickly.

 

Any ideas welcomed? Thank you.

Thank you Nikunj,

I have already optimised the Lightroom preferences and other perfromance-related settings.

I'd rather not do a full uninstall-reinstall, as it's a fair bit of work and I'm very busy at present.

 

However, as stated originally, Lightroom runs perfectly well once loaded. It's just the slow load time because of the 6-7 instances of Dynamic Link Manager 14 that appear one by one. Why does this happen? What is their purpose? Nothing to do with video file indexing, as all my images are stills.

 

I'd appreciate answers to these questions.

Thank you.
