Loading stalls on some "witty slogans" before proceeding?

When loading Zwift, some of the “witty slogans” (e.g. Respect your Ride Leader, Rest Days are Important) go by pretty quick, but sometimes the loading stalls on one (or several) for a couple of minutes or more. Eventually, it gets by and the program loads and then there is no problem. But the process to get to the Ride On screen can take up to five minues.

I am using a recent Windows desktop with decent CPU, etc.

What is causing this delay and how can I fix?


5 minutes certainly sounds to be an issue.

Can you give more detail reference the setup you have in terms of the spec of your desktop.

Thanks for the replies. It’s mega frustrating. I’ve missed many the start of group rides.

Computer Setup: Dell Optiplex 7010 Intel Quad Core i7 3770 3.4Ghz, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB Hard Drive, Windows 10 Pro x64.

Graphics setup: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB 128-bit GDDR5 VRAM

This is a dedicated box for Zwift – nothing else.

Wahey! :wink:

Buy a 120GB SSD, swap the power/data cables over and clean install Windows 10 onto it. £15/$20, will dramatically improve absolutely everything about the PC including Zwift load times, which will be about 30secs. Job done.

Are you running any anti-virus type programs?
