I have a strange problem which I haven't been able to fix. Basically, any image I open on the desktop with the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" takes 4 seconds to load no matter how big or small. I hear the hard drive grinding. If I open the same images not located at "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\" then they load up instantly. My PC isn't slow either, a Intel C2D E4300 @ 3GHz with 2GB PC2-5400 RAM. Any reason why images are taking longer to load on desktop and any way to fix this? Thanks!
