REPRO steps:
- add a shortcut key to a Windows Start menu item: find
an item you like in the Start Menu (say,
Accessories/Command Prompt), right click, select
Poperties, enter a value (say 'C', resulting in Ctrl +
Alt + C) in the "Shortcut key" field, OK to save the
result
- from the desktop, test the shortcut: press Ctrl + Alt +
C and note that a Command Prompt should launch pretty
much instantly
- close the Command Prompt
- install Microsoft AntiSpyware beta, ensure it's running
and ensure real-time protection is enabled
- launch Command Prompt again using the Ctrl + Alt + C
keystroke.

RESULT: about 4 seconds later, Command Prompt appears.
EXPECT: Prompt to launch instantly, as before running
MSAS.

Note: once Command Prompt is running, the shortcut key
does pretty much instantly take you back to the prompt;
the 4 second lag only appears on initial launch.

Note: the same problem occurs for me with all apps for
which I happen to have assigned shortcut keys, including
Command Prompt, IE, Word, and Excel.
