My XP folders are taking 4-8 seconds to open, but only from shortcuts. If I have a folder open and I d-click to open a subfolder, or go up the tree to the parent folder, that is fast as usual.

Any ideas about cause please, or how to isolate?

IME...such things occur because the system needs to run the chkdsk /r command and then defragged. That's what I would try.
