    Show common tasks in folders screws XP ?

    Hi there mina ^^

    Long time, a long time no see.

    Well, after some downfalls and come backs, i'll post here for help again.

    I recently un-installed Vista temporarily on my machine,

    Asus M2N SLI-Deluxe
    AMD Athlon X2 4400+
    Nvidia 8500GT
    3Gb Ram DDR2

    a simple machine, nothing fancy but enough for the use i give it.
    Well, with vista 64bits ultimate SP1, it as a really good performance..."vista blábláblá" the thing is, it performs well..

    I installed XP on it again (SP2) and notice something really odd....when i have Show Common Tasks in Folders activated, on some folders...it takes forever to access them...specially on another drive.

    If i disable it, it loads normaly..

    Can anyone help me out why this happens? I honestly have no clue what so ever.

    Thank you very much for your kind patience ^^

    Best regards,

    What is the folder set for? Thumbnails view sometimes takes forever and a day to load all the previews.

    Also, we turn Indexing off to help a little speed boost.

    This might not be pertinent, but I know that a dead shortcut in a folder will slow down load times to a crawl, especially on the desktop.
