I run ArtWorks 2.82 with VirtualRPC-AdjustSA and Risc OS 6.10, all 
sitting on top of Windows XP Professional (SP2).

If Windows isn't doing anything when I run VRPC I find ArtWorks loads 
in less than 2 seconds.  If however I'm playing CD's using Windows 
Media Player, ArtWorks takes about 10 seconds to load pausing at the 
banner screen - quitting ArtWorks and reloading it takes less than 2 
seconds to load.

Is Windows running anything (virus-checker, etc.)?
