VSTs Loading Slowly After Reinstall of Windows 10

I’ve been using Cubase Pro 9.0 for a few years without any issues. Specifically, I have all my VSTs (EastWest) on SSDs and once I put them there the load time increased dramatically. I was very happy.

I recently had to reinstall Windows 10 and I didn’t change any of my hardware. However, since the reinstall even though my VSTs are in the same location (they weren’t moved) they are loading extremely slowly.

Any ideas of what would cause this and how I could possibly fix it?

Thank you.
