Default Detector Tools Taking Several Minutes to Load

I just bought a Max 360 and I'm in the process of trying to get everything setup and running properly. As the title of my post reads, Detector Tools is taking 5-10 minutes to load. I'm running Windows 10 with 16 mb RAM. I have uninstalled & reinstalled Detector tools twice, but it's still very, very slow to load.

Is this a common problem or does anyone have a suggestion on how to correct this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Richard

I'll suggest that you use Detector Tools PRO instead of the older version of Detector Tools. Download it here.

I am using Detector Tools Pro. I'm sorry for not stating so in my original post. Actually, the Pro version is the only version I see that can be downloaded.

I just removed the program from my computer, downloaded again, and installed the download.

Although slower to open than any other program I run on my desktop, the last download did open and I was able to run the updates.

Thanks again.

Detector tools pro & unpro both are kind of slow to load (on 3 different computers, 3 different OS's , XP, Vista, and 10), I guess I'm just used to it now.
