Very slow to startup

When I start LBP, either via the shortcut or the start menu, it is extremely slow to actually start running. I've timed it at 6 minutes. If I try to start it again in that time, it tells me I can only have one copy running at a time. Also in that time it shows up on my applications list as running. No other program I have installed gives me this problem, matter of fact they all start right up. I'm using WINXP with all updates and a fairly new computer 3.2 ghz, 1 gig ram, etc. Any ideas that may kick start this thing?

Hello,

Most likely it is a conflict with the background updater and your firewall (Zone Alarm Pro or the follow-on version by another company). When Logbook Pro starts, go to the Options area, clear the checkbox at the buttom of the User-Info dialog to allow background updates. It will then most likely startup right away.
