Slow display of images (icons or Thumbnails) in explorer
Posted on 2002-06-25
I am running Win XP Pro an experience very slow action when browsing directories with images. It takes a second or two per file to show the icon in list or detail mode or the thumbnails in that mode. When I back to the same directory it is does the same slow start up. I can open these same files from other pcs on my home network and they come up fine. That includes pcs with Win XP Pro, WIndows 2000, Win ME, and Win 98SE. I have tried various things to fix the problem on this machine and am ready to reformat and install a brand new copy of XP Pro. I do computer support work and have not seen anything this frustrating. I also do lots of photo image work and find using this particular machine to be almost impossible for such work.
