BlackBerry Link Slow to Start on Win7 64 bit, Unable to complete first backup

I have BlackBerry Link (latest version) installed on my Win7 64 bit system and find that when I restart my computer it takes forever for Link to start. The app does appear to function once it has started, but I have not been able to do a complete backup of my Z10.
