Flash movie pausing before preloader even starts

I am having a problem with a published Flash Movie. I included a preloader and the whole file size of the .swf is only about 1MB. If I go to the movie, it pauses even before the preloader appears on the screen. I have the preloader located on frame 1 & 2 of the first scene.

When I test the movie out of Flash and I view bandwidth and simulate a download, it shows that the movie is at Frame 0 for approximately 10 seconds. (I am figuring that is the pause I am seeing before my preloader appears.) Has anyone ever run into this problem before? If so how do you fix this? I have the whole project complete and now that we are about to put it online, it is having a glitch in the loading.

Any help would be appreciated.

By the way, I just set up a simple preloader, here is the script:
if (_framesloaded == _totalframes) {


} else {



(this is on the second frame of the first scene...)
