Ok, i erased the bfont.ttf file to see if that solved the problem. But that didn't work. What really happens when i start Blender is this:
1)I double click on Blender.exe (that's the hard part :P )
2)the DOS window appears
3)the Blender main window appears, stays blank (grey, actually) for 5 seconds (and the hardware usage doesn't increase) and the buttons and the 3D window finally appear.

Is anyone else having this same problem? I'm very sure it's not related to my processor or my video card. I'm just a Blender user wanting the best for the best :wink:

Mine does the same.

I can't say the 5 seconds bugs me that much.


Its not your hardware though, I am sure.

But what causes that? It's not the text. And no huge dinosauric features have been added to make Blender slower :P

I can only guess, its probably got something to do with the True Type Fonts or Quicktime.

Something that needs loading on startup.
