Default Accessing My Computer is horribly slow

Well, topic says all. I double click and it can take like 10 seconds just to display the icons and such. All other activity is fine.

Any ideas?

Does the same thing happen at Open and Save prompts? Do you have any network drives mapped?

Yes, opening it happens, but only if I select My computer in the drop down.

Okay. When I saw this sort of thing before, it was because there was a non-responsive drive or device under My Computer (such as a network drive that you no longer have access to). Windows will be waiting for that device to respond and won't display the contents until a timeout has been reached.

Do you have anything under My Computer besides local hard drives and optical drives?

I thought something similar. I rebooted and that seems to have taken care of the problem, though it could still concern me. The only drives I have are C, D, and E (CD drive). I haven't used the CD drive today.

Actually, scratch my last post. The same thing happened again today. It's gotta be the CD drive. I right clicked and got a "Not responding" from my computer. This doesn't make sense as I am not even using the CD drive. I don't use the CD drive too often either.

I looked in SiSoftware Sandra. It took like 10 seconds for it to ID the drive (normally takes half a second) and didn't give any info. Just a bunch of nothing...

You might want to try re-installing it...
usually its just when a cd is in the drive though-- try playing with the master/slave settings and putting it on a channel its own(if you have more than one drive)
