When I double-click a folder to open it, there is an annoying 2-3 second lag before it opens. This problem is driving me crazy!
The good news is I've discovered a partial reason: every time a folder is accessed, the LED on my network adapter blinks (I use a notebook computer, the adapter connects the RJ45 to the network card).
I suspect that, by default, Explorer is trying to find the folders' contents on the network instead of my hard drive.
When I disconnect my computer from the network, the delay disappears.
Anyone have any ideas on how I can further troubleshoot or fix this? Please don't say virus, I've already scanned for this.
