    I used to work with an i5, 8gb RAM macbook pro and myeclipse launched within 2 minutes max.. But now I have an i7, 32gb RAM Razer blade an it takes 5 minutes for myeclipse to launch. Is there a reason for that? I bought this expensive laptop to be more productive, but this is killing me.

    Sorry to hear you’re running into this. The problem is likely Windows Defender – we’ve noticed that in every Windows session, it seems to scan the entire IDE installation, and only then allow the application to proceed with execution. You can add a process exclusion for myeclipse.exe, or exclude the MyEclipse installation directory from Defender.

    Please see this article for instructions on how to do this: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-exclude-files-and-folders-windows-defender-antivirus-scans

    Do let us know if this resolves your startup time issues. We’re working with the Eclipse team to see if there’s another way in which this can be resolved.

    That totally solved the issue, now it launches in a couple seconds.
    Thank you very much
