I am running Windows XP SP3 on an IBM T400 laptop.

Recently, whenever I try and open My Computer, it takes several minutes to start - regardless of how many apps I have running on the machine.

If I go to Start> and then type in the UNC path for a local folder on the machine, I get there instantly.

Any ideas?
