Solidworks 2016 Slow Startup

When I start Solidworks it comes up with the usual splash screen and a little message ticks past at the bottom of the screen telling me what it is loading.

It reaches 'Loading Add-In - Solidworks Design Checker' after roughly 10s, then sits there for another 30-40s, still claiming to be loading Design Checker. Then it opens Solidworks.

3 Questions:

1. Why does it sit there for so long claiming to be loading Design Checker?

2. How can I make the start-up time shorter?



3. Given that it is not actually loading Design Checker



what is it really doing that causes the pregnant pause?
