formatting notebook contents

Hi, I have installed mathematica 10.0.1, every time when I open it, it shows me

formatting notebook contents

and mathematica becomes unresponsive.

Can anyone suggest me what to do to get rid of this?

Please first try resetting Mathematica to its default configuration. This often solves problems even with fresh installations:

If this continues to be an issue, I would contact Wolfram Technical Support (

After upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10, Mathematica 10.2.0 developed this same problem. I reset the configuration as suggested and it helped reduce some of the excess freezing and crashing, but the "Formatting Notebook Contents" message still appears often and there are long delays when doing certain things. The autocomplete help sometimes has a long delay, causing the notebook interface to freeze until the list of matching commands pops up. Saving a file and closing a file takes a long time. Etc.

BTW, I noticed that the main Mathematica.exe process is spawning 2 instances of WorframKernel.exe. Is that normal?
