SourceTree is much slower to start

Let me start by thanking you for this fantastic FREE tool. I use it a lot.

I have upgraded ST latetly to - it starts much slower than prevously and it also have some odd behaviour that might give a clue:

1. It flashes two dialog windows. I manage to catture one which says: 
"Extracting file... Extracting archive: C:\Users\<>\AppData\Local|Atlassian\SourceTree\g[......]"

2. I have pinned ST to my TaskBar (Win10). Once ST starts, it displays an additional shortcut on the taskbar.


Thank you
