3 second delay
I have a problem whereby all my users, including me, experience a 3-5 second delay opening any of the Documents, Pictures, Music and Videos folder from the start menu.
I can't think of what I am doing possibly wrong other than that those folders are 'Libraries.'
Accessing the personal folder (username) on the start menu opens instantly.
Everything else is working hunky-dory.
This is a Windows 7 SP1 Pro 32-bit. User areas are stored on a Windows Server 2003 Standard SP2.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Just a update...
Deleting the Application Data (redirected through GPO) helped reduce the timing a little - but what helped the most was redirecting the desktop shortcuts to the C: drive.
My start menu and desktop shortcuts are now redirected to the local drive. I no longer have the 20 second delay, thankfully!

3 to 5 seconds is quite normal in my experience. If I right click a .jpg for example, it can take 5-10 seconds for the context menu to appear. W7 also pisses off and "thinks" quite regularly when it won't let you do anything. I never had this problem with XP. Sadly, college policy is that we run W7.

What I should have mentioned then was that it was a 20 second delay in opening Documents, Pictures, Music and/or Video folder.
I found that both the Start Menu and Desktop had to be redirected to similar locations, e.g. both to a network share or local drive. You can't have one pointing to a network share (in my case it was the desktop) and the other to the local drive.
This is what caused me the delay issue.
