I'm using ZAES 10. I'm running Windows Vista, 32 bit. I have 3 Gigs of RAM, 2.10 GHZ dual core processor.
Problem: When I boot up my computer, it hangs at a blank grey screen while trying to load the desktop. No taskbar, no desktop icons, the mouse cursor is there and moves but that's it. It hangs for roughly 5 minutes before loading everything up properly.
If I tell ZA to not start on bootup, the problem goes away. If I turn off all programs except ZA, problem is still there. I've tried resetting the settings and that doesn't help. I'm running out of ideas and almost ready to remove ZA, which I don't really want to do.
