How to speed up SQL Server Management Studio

In some cases you will find SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) slow to start up (could take up to a minute).

To resolve the issue uncheck the “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation” box in the Security section of Internet Explorer’s Options.  This disables a lookup on the Internet that could account for the time.  Note that this affects all managed applications (.NET).

Thanks to Euan Garden for the tip.
