NetBeans IDE very slow to load

I am currently using NetBeans IDE 6.1 on a daily basis and encounter a frustrating slow load time each time it opens. It takes about 1.5 minutes from when the splash screen starts to when the UI is responsive. I have three projects in the projects tab none of which are all that big. I'm running XP on a PC with high specs and all other programs are running fast.

Does anyone else encounter the same problem? And perhaps know how to speed up the load time? Thanks.


  • Try uninstalling the plugins that you dont need from the NetBeans IDE. That will help the NetBeans to load faster.
    As a last option, try upgrading to Netbeans IDE version 6.9.
    Thats amazingly fast!

    Hope that helps!
