this started happening today. There are some programs i use that have a command prompt window (aka a "console window") before the actual program begins, Such as ScummVM, and PSXfin. Now, up until today those programs were working fine, I would click the shortcut, and the program came up within a second. But today i noticed that the command window is blank (it usually shows start-up info of the program and such) and it takes like 5 seconds before the actual program window pops up. also, at closing the program, the command window just hangs for about 2 seconds before closing, when it usually closes instantly.

any ideas where this sudden occurrence came from?

update: I tried to do a system restore to 2 days ago, but that didn't make any difference.
