FTM2014 Startup Time?

FTM2014 Startup Time?

A quick question! When launching FTM2014, it takes "forever" to launch! Is there anything I can do to speed up the launching of the program? I'm running it on Win7 64bit and have 8GB of memory.

Thanks for any tips.

Define "Forever"?

What kind of internet access do you have?

FTM does log into Ancestry.com, and if you have a SLOW connection, then it will take a while.

I am using Comcast.net - what is the best (and safest) way to test the Internet speed? I looked at a few, but they all want to download programs and/or toolbars to your computer to run - I do not want that. So, what would be the best way to determine the speed? Second, if I do not want FTM to automatically login to Ancestry.com, how do I turn that off and on just when I need it?
Thanks

In FTM 2014 go to Tools/Options. In the lower right corner you will see a box labeled Search. Make sure both options are turned off, no check marks. That is how I use FTM. If I want to search ancestry I use Web Search on the tool bar.

WOW! That really decreased the startup time - thanks so much for the tip. One day, I hope I can help you with something to pay you back! Take care and happy holidays!

Wow, I'm having a major problem with the Startup Time again. Today, it takes about 3 minutes for the program to start (no other programs on my system have this problem). I'm not sure what to look at - I turned off all Security programs to see if that affected it, no change. I do not have it signed in to the website (I sign in when needed) and I don't store anything online. Search items are not checked! What could be the problem here?

Thanks for any insights!
