* Version takes much longer to load than before(for me, 20 seconds plus on a faster than avg system).
* Also, at times, I'm unable to access the File or Edit menu item. I get the executing circle. However, other menu items are able to be accessed. This is very strange.

Something is different with this update. I've never had these types of problems.

Thank you for your attention.

I would uninstall, SHUT DOWN and restart the computer, and reinstall. Restart again.

It might have to do with Windows Security. You could try going to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection. Under Virus & threat protection settings, select Manage settings, and then under Exclusions, select Add or remove exclusions. Try adding C:/ProgramFiles/MakeMusic/Finale and C:/ProgramFiles/Garritan.

But first I would contact MakeMusic and complain.

Without knowing your operating system, everyone with a specific answer is guessing. Windows what?
