Default [SOLVED] Slow first load of bsplayer + avg8


I noticed a very strange behavior:
I installed AVG Free 8, now the first time I run Bsplayer it takes 20 sec for it to load.
After that, when I close and reopen Bsplayer it only takes 2 sec to load.

Did some research and found that there is something with the visual c++ 2005 redistributable that AVG installs:

I did a new installation of XP (pro N version 2002, sp2).
Installed Bsplayer (BS.Player.Pro.v2.28.964.exe).
Installed C++ (
BSplayer loads in 2 sec.

Installed AVG8 (avg_free_stf_all_8_100a1323.exe)
Now Bsplayer has thet 20 sec problem.
Uninstalled the C++. No problem in Bsplayer, AVG will not run.
Reinstalled that C++, AVG can run, Bsplayer has the 20 sec problem.

a) Does any one else has this slow first load of Bsplayer?
b) Is there any solution to this problem?
