I installed and have been using Windows 7 Build 7100 – 64-Bit, Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz, and 4 GB of RAM for approximately two months. The system started off lighting fast, but now when I open Windows Explorer it runs extremely slow, slowest I have ever seen. There is a green line above that shows it’s reading the directory, but like I said it takes forever and if it is a directory with a lot of files and directories it could take minutes. I had turned off the search features, but since then have turned them all back on, which helped very little, so it is still very slow and I don’t want to have to reinstall everything to just fix that one problem, but I almost feel that is where I am at. I noticed one other person had this problem, but there were no threads with answers.
What can I do, does anyone know what this problem is and have other people experienced the same problem?
Thank you for any help anyone can give.
