Premiere CS5 takes 5 minutes to start up

When loading PPro CS5 – my splash screen gets stuck on “Loading ExporterQuickTimeHost” — for, really, about five minutes.  This is not an exaggeration.  I’ve timed it multiple times.  The shortest was four and a half minutes, the worst about seven minutes.


After Effects does the same thing — stuck on “Loading MediaCore.”  About the same time delays.


Photoshop and InDesign load without issue.


My system is a three month old Intel i7 with 8 gigs of DDR3 ram along wth an unsupported NVIDIA graphics card with more CUDA cores than the lowest supported card.  Meaning, this isn’t some ancient awful system.


Any thoughts or ideas?
