Ableton Live 9 Suite x64 takes 30 to 60 seconds to get to the splash screen. Any ideas?

I may have the solution to this dilemma but will give more detail first.

I installed Live 9.0.1 several days ago into C:/Program Files instead of the default C:/ProgramData. The folder ProgramData was used instead of AppData as the previous beta versions needed complete administrator access and the folder ProgramData allotted for that. When I start Ableton it would take anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds to simply arrive at the splash screen.

Now, my potential solution... I uninstalled then reinstalled Live 9.0.1 x64 to the default folder ProgramData and all seems to be working just fine. Live starts as it should in a short period of time. I suspect I have solved my own issue.

The reason for my post was to assist with any other Live users that may have run into this problem as I have not found any others that have asked this question.

Hope this helps someone out there if they are having the same issue.

    I wonder. I just installed Live 9 Suite x 32 into ProgramData and arrived here after a google search looking for a solution to the slow startup time. This reminds me of one of the older versions of Live before they fixed the slow startup problem.
