Preparing to launch is S-L-O-W.

Ever since I updated my Gmod (with the new background menu screen) it takes me like 15 min to load up Gmod. Is this an individual problem or does everyone else have this as well? And if so, is there a way to fix it? I tried re instillation four times in a row but no help. Any thoughts?

I have it.

I get it randomly I just check forums I often go to while waiting or go to youtube

yeah, it takes me at least 5-10 minutes most of the time, i deleted the cache and that helped a bit, it only takes around a minute or two now.
