My computer has never been so slow. Some folders are especially slow, though not my music folder with 30 gigs of ~4mb files. Otoh, my start menu folders Doc&Set/*/Start Menu/ are broken, and they have less than fifty shortcuts per user. And by broken, I mean they won't open. Double-click, folder freezes ~30-60 seconds, unfreezes, doesn't change folder, and further clicks anywhere but the "up" and title bar buttons put it back in the freeze cycle. So far these are the only folders affected, but they're affected for all users. Commonly used programs like Firefox, Pidgin, and especially Winamp (even in classic mode) are unbearably slow. Azureus is slow too, but it wasn't ever fast. Simple things like opening a new tab in FF occasionally take as long as five seconds. Opening "My Computer" often takes nearly thirty seconds. The internet has felt sluggish to start too, though simple bandwidth tests confirm I'm getting the 40kB/s I'm paying for, once it get's going.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The Computer:The Five Steps:
  1. Didn't see anything obviously bad in add/remove programs, and didn't see anything I didn't install.
  2. The online scan picked up a few MS Home Publishing files infected with Redlof. Puzzling, because those are from an older computer, and were supposedly fixed by McAffee.
  3. IE-SpyAd has been replaced by ZonedOut; installed fine.
  4. I installed a bunch of important system updates.
  5. There was no Extra.txt from DSS to attach.

Bump.

If you guys can't help me, I'd love to know. I prefer to be helped, of course, but the suspense is killing me.

I tried using an alternative file manager called SurF. It's GPL-ware. It hasn't had any trouble loading folders yet, even the obstinate start menu folders that explorer.exe still can't handle.
