Vista -deleting, moving and copying files


Marian Pudek

I have problems with deleting, moving and copying files regardles of the
type that iswhether graphic or text. I've to wait for about 30 seconds
before it is
deleted. The same in Recycle Bin as well. I click on to delete file a text
box drops down it says
"calculating time remaing" and after about 20 to 30 seconds finaly being
The file can be as small as few kb or a few MB'c.
I've never seen anyting like that?

Does anyone can provide advice how to deal with it?
Or anyone had this kind of experience? Please help?
In Windows Mail the deleting files is as one may expect - normal.

I've MS Vista Home Premium since march. And I'm not at all happy with many
of its features, too much FLUFF for nothing!
I'm seriously thinking of going back to either Win XP or Apple.

Thanks Marian


Marian, try this:

During this 30 second wait, press CTRL-ALT-Delete, the screen should change,
then click on "start task magager", then click on the "Processes" tab. Look
at the CPU column. This column tells you the % of processing power each
process is taking. Look for a process that is hogging the processor.

Hi Paul,
This suggested approach looked promissing but no cigar!
The CPU %'s didn't look much different from each other
usually very low percentages in all cases, none stoodout as
hogging the processor, perhaps I don't know what I'm looking at.
Thanks for the effort in trying to help me.

Ps. Finaly came around to follow up on your advice


Hmmm... The only other thing that I can recommend is to run the "event
viewer" as administrator and look at the application, security, system under
the "Windows Logs". Look at the verious system messages, see if there is
anything in there that doesn't seem right.
