Short description of error
When I start Blender 2.79b it hangs for about 15 seconds at the CLUI window, curser blinking away. It does not slow down the pc in anyway but is is non responsive. When it finally is up and ready there is a delay of about 20 seconds ONLY when I use the >File command menu< and choose any command other than open recent, user preferences and quit. When I choose open for example the menu literally stays there and waits about 20 seconds before it vanishes and I’m presented with a window to choose from. From there I can open the file and edit and so forth as always until I go to export or save or use the file menu again in any way (except for open recent, user preferences and quit) where it delays again.
When I am IN user preferences and go to the FILE tab and start modifying the default directory’s there is the delay again waiting for it to respond to allow me to choose a folder Unless I type it in manually and there’s no delay doing that
In short, the delay is always at starting up blender or when a selection is made from the File command menu or in the FILE window in user preferences.
When I double click a blend file from file manager it still delays at the CLUI window but zings right into the blend file after that. I reinstalled Blender, I uninstalled all plug ins I could find.
I think I should add that during these stalls the hard drive activity light stays on solid.
Would the fact that I had Blender 2.80 installed previously and uninstalled it then installed Blender 2.79b have anything to do with this File command menu fiasco?
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
No file involved. To follow same steps 2.80 must b installed then uninstalled first
