You could Download and try a program called Ad-Aware from www.lavasoftUSA.com It removed Spyware from you computer If you do have any it could be slowing things down Hi there, I wonder if anyone could help me with this problem. Periodically my windows explorer seems to be exceptionally slow when changing directory, moving or deleting files. I've run my antivirus, cleanup, and various other little 'fixing' programs, but nothing seems to fix it. Other programs seem to run normally. I've only got a bare minimum of programs running, my AV, zonealarm and fix-it utilties. I'm running Windows 98 (second edition), Pentium P6 family?, 512mg ram and 20 gig hard drive. Any advice would be welcome coz its driving me round the bend, lol.
