windows 8.1 file open/file save as dialogs very slow
Posted on 2014-09-23
I am trying to get my system to run faster now that my son has stopped using it. For some time I have a problem when I open a file or do a file save as (from office products or indeed from other apps).
The first action will take 20-30 seconds and then subsequent actions are fine. This isn't the Green Bar Of Death as it happens before the dialog window is displayed.
I have uninstalled all my sons junk apps but the only thing I can see that is unusual is on Windows explorer where tunder network it shows my PC and an entry for localhost. I had turned IIS off/on/off ans it makes no difference. I can't file any localhost entries in the host file.
Any ideas. Its driving me nuts!
