It takes a long time, up to 5, once 10 minutes, to load from Lightroom Classic. Also sometimes it get stuck on the first splash page which shows recent photos that have been working on. If I close it I get a message "The file could not be edited because PS 2022 could not be launched. I choose "OK" and then the launch process starts all over again and then the work screen appears with the photo. The blue donut turns and turns and then I can work on my photo. Note that all this happens whether PS or LR have been updated recently by Adobe or not. Adobe has a big update this morning and nothing has changed. I have reinstalled the software, etc some weeks ago hoping that a reinstall would help.
How can I fix this behavior? It did this in Win 10 and now the same in Win 11. Thanks-

Well, suggest so process of elmination. Shutdown everything including VPN, Virus App and Malwarbyes andd see what happens.

If RAM isn't an issue, see what your other resources are doing.
