I'm running ZA pro 7.0.337 under fully updated/patched XP. The hang only occurs when working with the program control page, and can last
5-10 minutes, or several hours on reboot (!). The gui does eventually respond, however.
I've done a clean reinstall without affecting the behavior.
I have about 65 individual apps listed in my start menu, but there must be over 500 on the program control page. Most of which are update.exe files, and other utilities.
Could the number of apps be causing this behavior?
Why are all these apps listed? What are the consequences of removing all the setup.exe and similar apps?

if it's not the number of apps listed, any ideas of what's causing this?
thanks for any ideas people may have!
