284MB file that I have just opened in XP in less than 1 minute - at present on Hewlett-Packard a6020 Intel Pentium D cpu 3.0GHz 1014MB ram and it is at present calculating time to open as 2 days and 16 hours What is Microsoft playing at ???????????
Which software are you using to unzip?I assume it's Winrar,which i use. click here Also,if you have only 1 gig of ram with Vista,things do tend to run very slowly. I suggest shutting down all programmes you don't use and disable a lot of things on start up. Also if you shut down UAC whilst trying to unzip,it can have a dramatic improvement as this tends to slow the process.
but on trying to extract as it starts it then says there is a file already with that name and will go no further - it has just put that file there - have unzipped it on my XP PC using right click method on to memory stick and copied the folder to Vista and it works fine -but why Vista (now with SP1 on) cannot handle this simple task
till the next time i'll tick resolved ;(
