    Hey all.

    I just recently reinstalled my winxp.
    Everything has been running good but lately when I go to run a folder [C:/ for instance, but could be any other folder] it will lag anywhere from seconds to minutes in opening the folder and sometimes it won't bother to open it at all.

    Other than this I haven't noticed any problems and all my programs are opening just fine. Any tips?

    Hi
    Usually, when windows explorer delays the display of your drives/folders it is an indicator that it is having a problem locating that drive or folder......
    Could be imminent drive failure or bad sectors on drive?
    Could be a bad CD/DVD in the Rom drive, thats causing the delay. ensure drives are empty.
    Could be mapped/network drives. (if you have any that is)
    Could be corrupted files on Hard drive, run scan disk/ Error checking in XP
    Is windows slow to boot as well?

    xp's loading time isn't too unreasonable. Better than it was before I reinstalled the system, especially. I've just never had this lagging problem before on opening drives...
