After working well for several weeks, True Image Home 2009 is now taking about 4 minutes to start up. It reports it is in the "initialize" stage, then reports it is "removing obsolete scripts", where he hangs and hangs. I am using Build 9796, which I updated to in an effort to solve this problem. Some background that may be helpful. Before this problem developed, I added a second hard drive (USB, external). I used TIH to delete several small files on this 2nd drive, but when I tried to delete a large folder and its files, TIH froze up and had to close. I subsequently removed the second HD. I am running Windows XP Home, SP3. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
