    Has anyone else have the experience that CS5 starts slower in Lion than in Snow leopard ?

    In Snow leopard 2 sec
    In Lion 5 sec


    Imac 27" , 3.4 ghz i7 , 256 SSD , 16 ram


    Almost every program starts slower in Lion !?

    Nope. Everything actually runs faster for me. Did you try repairing disk permissions?

    Sorry for the late response.

    Try this:

    Go to Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility and open it.

    Once open, on the left hand side in the bar you will see "Mac OSX" on one of the listings. Click it and then you will see a menu and you will see "Verify Disk Permissions" and "Repair Disk Permissions." Run Verify first, then run Repair. This can take a while on some systems.

    Testing in a new User will quickly tell you if the problem is system wide or if it's your User's folder that contains the problem.

    CREATE A NEW USER

    Go to System Preferences --> Create a New User in Accounts. Switch to the New User by logging out/in or use Fast User Switching.

    Test your CS5 applications in this clean environment. Do you see a difference? If yes, the problem is in your main User's folder.
