  freefx 08:43 22 Jan 2004

When i right click a file, it takes ages for the windows to respond. does anybody know why is that?
When i open windows tasl manager, its says the related folder is not responding

Computer is working fine.

There's probably a corrupt system file: command prompt, type sfc /scannow (note space) and pop in xp disc.

i have reinstalled xp using repair option, still the same

Is it all files or just some?

  freefx 09:41 22 Jan 2004

all files in this folder and some others but some are ok

  freefx 09:43 22 Jan 2004

some text files(.txt) also take ages

I always delete any spyware, but you can quarantine them so if there's a prob you can fix.
