Last week Creative Cloud updated my Photoshop to 2021 v22.3.0 and ever since when I start Photoshop it starts up normally, scans and load plugins per usual, but then freezes for 15 seconds before it starts working normally again. 15 second freeze everytime. Not a big deal, but annoying during a busy workflow. I've been using Photoshop for over 20 years and haven't seen this behavior before.
I also mention this because ever since the same Creative Cloud update Adobe Audition 2021 has also been acting weird--freezing if I switch to another application. Any suggestions? Thanks.
