By any chance, do you have Project Explorer open when this happens. I just found out one of my custom layouts that opens with a Program Explorer window open slows the opening to almost five minutes on a 1.4 gig Pentium 4. The other layouts are almost instantaneous.

Subject: [TMG] Freezing and possible conflict.
I too experienced freezing in TMG previously. It was cured by re-downloading
the complete programme rather than using an upgrade download. On that
occasion some fault in installation was presumably the cause.
Tonight I had freezing again. TMG froze on opening and Alt Control Delete
were dead too. I assume it was caused by a conflict with software I installed
last night. Several programmes seem to have inserted players to open when I boot,
but the new one is the Encyclopaedia Britannica which (I think) brought with
Quick Time player. I rebooted, disabled this and TMG is working fine now with
no damage to my file. Does anyone else know of this conflict?
I have been working all day with other software which behaved perfectly: a
database Procite and Word 2000 open and going on line with aol — all at the same
time with no problem at all. Is TMG oversensitive?
Does anyone know of conflict between TMG and any sound systems?
