When I go to Run and type cmd, it takes about 7-8 seconds for the command prompt to appear.
I have a Core i5 with 3GB of RAM running Windows 7 x86.
I really need the command prompt to run instantly because I use a lot of scripts to improve productivity. When the command prompt itself takes 7 seconds to load, the whole point is lost.
Does anyone have ideas as to what might be causing these delays?
