I have a DP533... and it takes forever to launch... like 1-2 minutes. The QuickTime Settings CP is also slow to load, and general QT UI performance is sluggish... but movies play fine.
Recently, I moved my System Folder from one HD to another, and noticed some slowdown afterward... So I did a clean install of 9.1 and updated to 9.2.1. The system slowdown dissappeared, but the QT lag did not. So I downloaded the QT installer, had it remove all QT stuff, then reinstalled... no change. I noticed that my settings in the QT CP were the same, so I trashed the QuickTime Prefs and the QuickTime Favorites next to it. But this didn't help either. In fact, I checked the QT CP again and my settings were STILL there.
So, where is the file that actually stores these settings? I want to trash it, to see if that helps.
I have also noticed a lag when iTunes switches songs... does anyone else experiecence a lag of around 5 seconds when iTunes begins playing a new song, and could this somehow be related to my QT woes?
BTW... My QT used to work fine, and I have rebuilt the Desktop File.
