    Hi,
    Recently (for some reason) I got this problem with my kontakt,it started after my antivirus false flagged one file of the kontakt as malware(already restored and put in whitelist).

    Every time I open Kontakt (even the Standalone app) I have to wait about 2/3 minutes because the app is freezed,cant do nothing about it,and only after then I can select the library I want to load.
    That means the not only when I start the app/Vst I have to wait,but everytime I put it in background(and work on something else,or work on different vst) and I want to re-open it to change/modify something,even if the vst is already loaded.
    I tried to reinstall kontakt, also in differents HDD/SSD but got the same problem.

    Is there anyone who got a similar problem that solved it?

    Thanks

    Does it just freeze on opening?
    or is it freezing like when you load a library etc.
    If it freezing for a long time with no patch etc just when your opening Kontakt is possible it may be something to do with the database.

    No freezes when I load libraries,just only when I open Kontakt(or re-open kontakt from the taskbar ).
    Also tried to delete libraries but it seems a problem of Kontakt program itself.
    If I reinstall the program it doesn't solve the problem,maybe there are some hidden folder to delete in order to have a new clean installation

    It's searching the database? Waiting for drives to spin up........etc?

    Try clicking a different folder (with not much in) in the "FILES" pane of Kontakt, then close and remove kontakt. Re-add it.....

    works for me.

    Also, if you have any CD/DVD drive loaded, Kontakt spins it up every time you open the GUI. Infuriatingly slooooow.
