I know that there have been similar questions on the forum, but I have tried to use some of the fixes and they all some how lead to Microsoft Fix/It. I tried Microsoft Fix/it but it doesn't open, download, or move. It is deader than my computer. Maybe my problem is a bit different so here it is.
How come when I open Windows Explorer and select a Drive or Folder or subfolder I see a green bar move ever so slowly across the Title Bar just above the menu bar? As long as this slow moving green bar is moving across the screen, nothing (meaning sub folders or files) is displayed in the area where you would expect to see the contents of the item selected. When I open a program to run it, it seems to take forever to run. And when it is running, it takes so long to accomplish the next step. On my other computers, one desk top like this one and a laptop, which all have the same operating system (Win7-64), pretty much the same programs (MS Office, email program, and accessory utility programs) don't seem to have this problem. I know Windows 7 has lots of settings, but as far as I have been able to check out, all my folder files and operating system files are all set up the same. I am using Explorer 9 on all three computers, and I had set up that program the same on all three computers. I just know there are a lot more settings that can be made (probably some that could make things worse) that I am afraid to touch because I don't know what all they might effect. (such as in the registry). What type of question should I ask to get me into the right area for an answer to my problem? FYI my Windows operating system is WIN7-64 professional, PID: 00371-152-5271132-85592 if that would help any. And I have done all of the virus checking things, and there are no viruses or malware anywhere on this computer.
