With every new Katalon update, browser launch seems to take longer

Actually the version of KS that I am using (6.3.3) no longer has the auto update Webdriver option under Katalon Studio preferences.
I have previously used Tools\Update Webdrivers\Chrome drop-down menu around 3 weeks ago, however.

The Chromedriver version is 77.0.3865.40.

The strange thing is that even the loading time for Katalon Studio is back to normal now. It was taking up to 5 minutes to load. Suddenly after yesterday lunchtime, all working as expected again.

I wonder if it’s something that’s changed within our company? I can’t think how I could get to the bottom of this?

God only knows, :wink:

Could you let me know where the Windows Update Logs are kept and also what do I look out for on the Task Manager. I like knowing why things fail, so that I can have confidence.

on win 10, if you type ‘update’ in search you will find something like ‘View update history’

I’m afraid the same issues have occurred again! The only thing that’s appeared to change is some recent Windows Updates:-

I have the same slowness running on Centos, no AV installed.
I takes ages to init browser :frowning:
Katalon version: 6.2.0 and I am not willing to upgrade it.
