No, it's not related to buffering feature (I disabled it and still I see a great amount of I/O bytes read at startup)
The odd thing is that it reads (at least on my system) circa 140MB in less than a second without disk activity (or my disk led doesn't indicate it to me, probably due to the short amount of time it lasts), and I'm on a laptop with 5400rpm disk, which can provide 40-50MB/s in optimal condition (not this case) :?
Memory usage is still low, only about 10MB..

Maybe it's because it seems to allocate several time the entire amount of system DLLs and BSplayer settings files (language files for example, almost 4000 accesses and full file allocations => 4000*35kB=136MB .... only for language file, that is the one which appears more often)

I don't know if this is the cause, or if it's an error by Windows apis to detect accessed data :roll:
