My Computer & Windows Explorer slow to open, Control Panel & large folder contents do not display
Posted on 2004-03-20
My Computer & Windows Explorer take a long time to start up. Other applications are fine.
Control Panel folder opens but no contents are displayed. Control panel items run fine when expanded off of Start Menu. Contents of small folders will display in any view in My Computer or Windows Explorer, contents of large folders such as Windows will not display at all - neither Icons, list or details.
Have run Disk Scan ,Defrag & fixed lost clusters Running Selective Startup with minimum number of items checked off. Same results with Normal Startup. System starts up & shuts down cleanly. Checked registry & other aspects of system with Norton Win Doctor and other tools with no issues.
Do not have a Windows Me disk in order to try re-install - only IBM recovery disks which require a disk reformat. Not sure what to try next?
