This is the second time I am posting this in hopes that someone might know anything about this.

Anyone know what might cause explorer windows (like opening my computer) to take about 10 seconds to open up after clicking the my computer icon (or however you are opening a window)? This is new, and does not seem to correspond with software changes. Once you have an explorer window open, browsing within that particular explorer window (i.e. clicking on the c: drive) works instantly, as expected. However if you close the explorer window, or open a new one, it takes 10 seconds to open. Any ideas? Thanks.

(P.S. To avoid any confusion, I am not referring to internet explorer in any way.)
(P.P.S. I am malware free as far as TrendMicro, SpySweeper, Adaware, and Spybot are concerned.)

Never, ever, ever respond to your own posts....and especially don't respond to your own responses

when we go searching for topics, we search for topics with no or 1 reply--you greatly decrease your chance of getting a response when a post has several replies, because we think that

a) you asked a question
b) we gave an answer
c) you said thank you

Instead, you
a) asked
b) asked again
c) asked again
