Quite often an instance of similarity.exe remains running after Similaity is closed.
During the next start "Can't read cache file" appears. Maybe this is a reason for cache proplems mentioned in other threads?!

This is means Similarity doesn't closed correctly - it wait something, maybe some 3rd party decoder to complete.
1) Download beta version
2) Enable detailed logs
3) Than you encounter this behaviour, see in logs that decoder is last not closed.
4) Send us this logs
5) Try to disable unnecessary decoders

In %APPDATA%\Similarity\logs or in \logs subfolder of Similarity folder (with exe) when started with /portable switch.
Problem may happen too if Similarity is started twice inadvertantly. If you have a large cache it takes some time until Program shows up. In the meantime you may unpatiently have tried to started it again.

It only happens if CACHE is very big.

=> Similartity should show a screen "please wait" and hourglass.

The same applies if Similarity starts.

Here it takes 30s without saying anything!
