lately when I click on a folder to see whats inside, the folder shows up empty and I have to wait about 20 seconds before it will show whats inside, during this time I can't open anything else, the mouse is moving around the screen but everything else if frozen until the folder shows up with content


anyone having similiar problem?

Defragged, checked for viruses, same problem

thanks

Yes - I had a similar problem with a bad HD - it's ususally a good sign that it is on it's way out - time to do a back up :)

Ditto @ beatlesdb... if this happens often, it might be time to look for a replacement HDD.

To see if your HDD is becoming corrupt, RIGHT click on the Drive letter > Properties > Tools [TAB] > Error Checking & Scan Now.

Good luck and regards,
