My Photoshop CC 2021 takes a while to startup hanging at "Reading preferences." Even if I hold down shift+ctrl+alt and reset the preference or hold down shift when launching in ignoring the plugins-filters, it still hangs at the "reading preference" part of the launch. It used to take about 10 seconds to launch Photoshop before I installed the latest Windows update and now it takes almost 3 minutes to launch. I've tried a bunch of tips that I've found such as turning off the workspace at launch, disabling graphics processor, increasing the memory use to 80%, changed the scratch disk to the fastest drive available on my computer, etc.. but yet my launch still takes a long time to load. 

 

Any ideas or suggestions on what could be causing this issue?

Use a prior Photoshop version that works for you. Some day Adobe may get Photoshop 2021 working well perhaps in 2021.
