beta bug report: start menu shortcut keys slow when AS running

Discussion in 'Spyware Discussion' started by Stephan Mueller, Jan 16, 2005.

  1. 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.
