My Computer shows "0 Objects" and is slow to open

Using Windows 2000 SP-3. Whenever i try to access "my computer" it always comes up as "0 objects" until about two minutes later when everything comes up.

PC is an Athlon XP2400 with Asus A7N8X mbo, 512MB RAM, ATi Radeon 9000 Pro, 40GB hard drive, DVD and CD-RW. It also used to be connected to a LAN, with shared access to folders on another computer but isn't now. OS is fully patched up to 15 Jun.

Anybody have any ideas why there would be this delay as I`ve never experienced it on any other machine.

Hardware components; no, its an onboard LAN controller. But it is no longer connected to the LAN.

Software: deleted links to 'remote' shared folders in Network Neighbourhood, and I hadn't mapped the folders to drive letters in Explorer - or at least, I thought I hadn't!
