Anyone had this before, yesterday while showing my mate something it started to play up, explorer opens slowly and all tasks seem to take forever to load. Interestingly I have traced it only to my C: drive(and partitions on it), opening up through the start menu and going to my computer, if I select C: it takes forever to open up and disply the directory structure, if I pick D: which is my second drive it opens and displys in a flash. I had noticed this during the week when transferring files between physical drives, but thought nothing of it. I have removed my Virus checker to see if the real-time scan had been enabled by accident and was still on even though I told it to turn off, but this made no difference. I am at a loss to explain this slowness, any ideas appreciated.
