Will there EVER be a fix for this in Vista??? There have been complaints since the betas about this. I spent 2 afternoons trying to delete Opera cache files which had been backed up to a USB drive. They totaled over 1 GB and thousands and thousands of individual files. I had to take 18 files at a time and delete them otherwise the computer seized up (I let it run for 45 minutes one time and so had to resort to this method to get the job done). Next time I'll use a suggestion I found on the 'Net....use Dos to delete or copy large files. Since the first time I booted up Vista, I have been annoyed at how long it takes to COPY files or DELETE files. What is going on here? This is slower than Windows 3.1 - how is this possible?? The scuttlebutt on the internet is that each individual file is being checked for DRM; is this true?? If so, why is Microsoft POLICEMAN of the world?? The people interested in DRMing their wares should police this themselves, no? Am I wrong here? I like Vista EXCEPT for this problem, the "not responding" message which appears when the software really IS responding, the horrible search feature (I use a free utility called "Cathy" so that I can just take a few SECONDS to scan my hard drives, CD's, external drives when I want to and retrieve ANYTHING far faster than the Vista search which makes you sit there for half an hour waiting for a green bar to fill in.) and the irritating UAC which I got rid of within a week. Isn't it time Microsoft fixed this?
