I think you're going to need to give a little more context. What do you mean by 'Searchlight'? What are you doing? When is this problem occurring?

I think he means the little torch symbol which appears in Explorer while the system's running through the file structure.
Run a defrag, should help.

could be any number of things
DO you have many drives mapped? are they all currently active and accessible?
Do you have any applications installed that introduce context menus to the shell? eg: right click menu items
Both of these can cause serious slowdown
