  • Hi,
    danke für den Link.
    Hm, mal ne Frage: Wie lange benötigt MS bei Euch zum starten.
    Habe als BS Windows 7 drauf. Bei mir benötigt es ca. 70 Sec. und zum schließen noch mal ca. 20 Sec.
    Das ist doch irre lange, oder?
    Hat da jemand eine Idee?
    Ach so, habe noch Kaspersky als Firewall drauf. Deaktivieren von Kaspersky hat auch keinen Unterschied gebracht. Kartenmaterial City Navigator Europe NT 2010.30 (Version 13.31).
    Hat da jemand eine Idee?

  • Idee? Ich hoffe Dein PC ist schon etwas älter. Wäre blöd wenn nicht.
    Mein PC hat auch schon 1 Jährchen auf dem Buckel. MapSource Start braucht 2s.

    nee, so alt ist der PC net. Habe jetzt einmal etwas im Netzt rumgestöbert. Es lag auch nicht am "PC", sondern an Kaspersky.
    Habe Kaspersky geöffnet > Einstellungen > Selbstschutz aktivieren Haken raus. Und siehe da, MS startet in ca. 2 Sec.
    Der Haken kann danach wieder gesetzt werden. Soderle, alles wieder im Lot.....
