Plugin manager takes too long to initialize

Is there any way my laptop or settings in cubasele8 will allow the plugin manager vst2 to take less than the 5-10 minutes to fully initialize?..dell laptop latitude 6410e…100 gb storage left…4gb ram…

Maybe this troubleshooting procedure will help…

or…

Maybe you can add your main Steinberg startup folder into your antivirus “exclude” list.

BTW… you can delete your duplicate post until someone replies to it.

I tried to delete but cannot find icon…someone posted to it saying to upgrade to cubase 9.5…

That’s what I did…and I guess that helped to make it faster.down from 5-10 minutes to 20 seconds!!
I did some other things like disabling real time windows defender…and fooled around with the advanced power settings…but I have a suspicion that eliminating about 10 folders in the plugin manager scan file section had some thing to do with making it faster…thanks
