Default Load Time Issues With Samples on Windows 10

Good morning everyone,

When I built my own PC, I originally had an issue where Windows Defender was scanning every sample as it loaded and it made a reasonable orchestral template take a very long time to load - around 15 minutes, and this is with 64 GB of RAM and an 8-core processor. Lorenz from support helped me figure out that it was a Windows Defender issue, so I permanently disabled it by editing the registry.

Fast forward to now, over a year later, and suddenly it seems like the issue has returned. I have changed nothing, other than Windows 10 getting an update. The registry edit I made stayed the same, Windows Defender does not appear to be running, but I just timed my template load time and it was about 10 minutes, versus around 2-2.5 minutes at its best. This is a recent occurrence - I work on music at least every 2-3 days, and it's just happened suddenly in the last week - no gradual slowdown, nothing like that.

Does anyone have any info on what in the new Windows update might be causing this? I'm honestly at a loss - any info on where I can look or what settings to check on my PC that might be causing this issue again? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
