Right-click hard drive properties slow
when I right-click on the Hard drive icon (in My Computer), it takes a minute or so until the applet starts (the one with the tabs)
I have tried everything from defrag, disk cleanup, sfc etc., still no go.
I've searched the archives but couldn't find anything.
Can anyone help?
Try these. First one works on Win2k & XP.
Automatically Refresh File Lists in Explorer
Change the value of UpdateMode in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Update from 01 to 00
Windows XP Icon Cache
Are you experiencing icon lag, while browsing thru all your Start icons and programs? Do you have a smaller menu delay and your icons need ages to load? No need to give up.
Just delete the IconCache.db file from your profile directory
(usually /Documents and Settings/Username/Local Settings/Application Data).
thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately it's still not working.
What I have noticed is that it's only occuring when I try to open the drive properties. (i.e. harddrive, external firewire drive or the cd-rw).
