Something is causing SAS to load very slow. I've tried everything I can think of. Uninstalling, reinstalling, safemode, updates, however it takes 10 minutes to load SAS and another 5 minutes to get to any other menu in SAS. I checked the task manager and nothing else is using CPU. I believe its a virus causing the trouble. I've been using SAS for a year with excellent results and have the professional versions on two of my computers. The troubled computer is my neighbors and is using the free versionof SAS. If I can get this problem solved my neighbor will purchase the professional version. I have also tried to install Maleware bytes and it won't even run. I installed AVG on it and it found several virus's but still can't get SAS to run properly. Please help, Thanks in advance! Dave
