Updates causing slow loading?


Recommended Posts

This morning I had 14 updates from Microsoft, several of which were updates for Microsoft.Net Framework 4 ( KB2533523, KB2468871, KB2539636 ) and one for 3.5.1 ( KB2539635). I have noticed since then that Paint.Net seems much slower to load. Before when I clicked on the icon it appeared in a flash, now it seems to struggle to appear.

I was just wondering if anyone else was having problems or if there was anything I could do to speed it up again?

The updates probably invalidated the NGEN cache. I think it automatically recompiles everything once the system is idle for awhile, but you can just rerun the Paint.NET installer if you'd rather it happen now. It may take a few minutes at the end though, when it's "Optimizing performance for your system."

You can verify that the NGEN cache is being used if binaries with ".ni." are loaded. Using Process Explorer, enable View -> Show Lower Pane, and then select View -> Lower Pane View -> DLLs.

You'll see something like this:

You may or may not see the corresponding non-ni counterparts.

"ni" stands for native image.

When I search for Process Explorer nothing is found. Is this another name for Task Manager or something?

- Never mind. Just realized it`s a downloadable program.

Here is what I get. Can`t see the files you pointed out though. -

Good news!! It seems to be back to normal again. I never did anything, just fired it up to do another check and to resize the name column as you suggested, and it loaded fine. I`ve closed it down and fired it up again a few times to make sure and it starts up OK again. The NGEN cache must have finally been recompiled .

Thanks for the help Rick. ;)
