Explorer / My Computer taking ages to find drives and folders.
Ok......I've been asked to "take a look" at a friends PC as it has slowed down a lot lately!!! Anyway, having updated the AV and run a scan, installed all O/S updates (XP Home), run CCleaner, uninstalled all the software she no longer uses, installed more RAM and DeFrag'd the system all now seems to be running a lot faster.................
Except that Explorer / "My Computer" takes about 40 secs to list Drives and Folders! I know that 40 seconds isn't long, but I also know that this information should be listed much quicker than this. I've hit a blank and can't think what can be causing it....I've searched other Forums as well for info and have tried everything I can find (disabling the WIA service, there's no Network Drives attached) but without any luck.
If anyone has any ideas please feel free to post.....this is driving me up the wall now!!! :confused2: :frusty:
