AirVPN launches excruciatingly slowly on Windows 10

Recommended Posts

My AirVPN client takes forever to launch on startup, often a few minutes. The app is set to auto-launch, but still takes forever to actually execute, and I cannot connect to the internet during this time because of some other issue.


It's getting very annoying, and is quite detrimental to the experience of AirVPN.

Windows 10 user here and the AirVPN client loads up quickly w/o any issue.


Try temporarily disabling your Anti-Virus, Firewall, MalwareBytes (one at a time) while attempting to start AirVPN and see if that helps.

I had a similar problem on Windows 7 Enterprise x64. Eddie started after about 4 minutes from system startup (as evidenced by logs) and, on top of all that, it clogged the startup cue, so that other startup programs also started late.


I tried many things to address this, but it would seem that the solution was to reinstall TAP-Windows, which can be found listed in Programs and Features. So, if any of you come across this problem in the future try the following:


(1) Download new TAP-Windows drivers (I got it from here https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html)

(2) Close Eddie if it is running

(3) Disable AirVPN task in Task Scheduler

(4) Uninstall TAP-Windows in Programs and Features

(5) Reboot 

(6) Install the downloaded TAP-Windows drivers

(7) Enable and Run AirVPN task in Task Scheduler

(8) Upon reboot, Eddie should start without (excessive) delay
