External information from Paul Collins:

  • "Adobe Gamma Loader" can run at start up. Adjusts monitor colours across all programs, including Photoshop. It is needed by some graphics professionals who want their monitor calibrated. Most home users will not need it. In my case I can verify this as Photoshop loads fine

Important: Some malware camouflages itself as Adobe Gamma Loader.exe, particularly when located in the c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder, for example Trojan-Clicker.Win32.VB.la (detected by Kaspersky), and Downloader (detected by Symantec).

I unchecked this in msconfig in the run startup menu catagory. Before I did this my Common Files Folder would always open at startup!

There is two variations. One that eat up memory and opens backdoors on your computers for viruses (trojan). And there is one Gamma Loader from Adobe. Did your computer run well before you had it? If it did, then you can certeinly delete it from your startup folder. You might aswell lookup where the shortcut is going to. Right-click, properties and the file path. If it's not Adobe/Photoshop directory, beware!

Have Adobe Gama Loader .exe and Adobe Gamma both in the Calibration file and both in Startup. Seems to be responsible for long start up times
   
Just did a virus scan after deleting it from my start menu, found the project 1 as a virus, i recommend deleting this is you don't have photoshop, and even if you do (like i have) check anyway.
