Hi, I recently bought a new pc and everything has been fine until recently, when i'm trying to access files through explorer its has got noticably slower. I open music files to play in media player through explorer, and it takes longer than it should to play the files. The most noticable effect is when I right click in the folder to bring up the menu, or click file from theo toolbar, it takes ages!

can anyone suggest what is wrong?

thanks!

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

You can click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up then disc defragmenter

Click start, run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, select all, right click any file, click delete confirm, reboot
