Long Pauses when opening local folders


Bryan Muller

I am wondering why it takes so long every so often when I open the root
folder of my "C" drive, or the Documents folder and so on. Everything is
local, and I hear almost no hard drive access. I am using Beta 2 Build:
Here are my specs if it helps at all:
(This is a custom White box system)

Intel Pentium D 3.4GHz
4 GB 667MHz RAM (Quad Channel 4x 1GB)
250GB Maxtor SATA Hard drive 7,200RPM
300GB Maxtor SATA Hard drive 7,200RPMWindows installation drive)
Dual nVidia 7800 GTX 256MB SLI Mode

If I can get any assistance....that would be Great. Thanks so much!

I know - I get this too - also long pauses when right clicking or multiple
selecting files.
I guess it's just a performance issue that hasn't been ironed out yet.

If it's any consillation, my machine's faster than yours and I'm getting it
as well :blush:(

Hello Bryan,

There are still alot of debug code in Windows Explorer for Windows Vista, as
well as other system components. You may wish to try changing some settings
regarding Windows Explorer via the Folder Options dialog.

To display this, simply press WinKey+R on your keyboard and type "control
folders". If prompted by User Account Control, allow the application to run.

I'd recommend to gain some performance from Windows Explorer that you set it
to Use Windows classic folders. You may also wish to turn off thumbnails to
lower load times in folders containing large image or video documents.

I hope this information helps you, have a nice day! :)

But if you have CTS then you might prefer pressing WinKey and typing
msconfig and pressing the enter key.

BTW what does disabling UAP do? Allow malware to work again?
