    This issue has been resolved via our support staff. In this particular case it was a file type, which was unknown to Live, an .app file, that was added to "Places". 

    Unknown file types for Live can cause issues with our Live Index, and thus affect Live's performance as well. 

    This and more is addressed in our Browser FAQs over here:
