Very Slow opening files in Windows Explorer, seems to be a files association problem
Posted on 2009-04-06
I have a very weird problem this morning. One of the computer here take a while to open any files with Windows Explorer. I thought at first it was only a Word and Excel 2003 extension problem but I later discovered it was everything. It takes more than 30 seconds everytime I click something. When I go in in Folders Options and Files Types, it takes easily 30 to 45 seconds too just to show me the list.
I guess the problem is related to file association in general, I don't know how it is possible or which extension is causing that. Is there's a way to reset it all ? We did not install anything or change anything that could have done this.
It's on a Windows XP SP3 with Office Pro 2003 SP3
Do you guys have any tips ?
