ilok issue when loading vsts?

When loading up programs it takes longer than ever to start, no matter the project. It is the same when loading cpr files up in the system. Strangely, when I cont/alt/del and stop ilok, it fixes the issue and all continues without getting stuck.
I have downloaded the latest ilok drivers, uninstalled the old putting and put in the new versions, though the problem continues.


Could you try to start Cubase in Windows 8 compatibility mode, please?
