Hello  All

Windows 8 pro  file explorer behaves erratic/freezing when scrolling through a large folder containing over 500 program files. The strange thing is that when I opened Windows System32  folder containing well over 3000 folders/files, file explorer works perfectly. Any ideas re this problem please?

Windows 8 pro,Pentium4,3GB memory,3.2Ghz CPU and 500Gb Samsung hdd.

I imagine there's a significant size difference between your Programs folder and the System32 folder.

Yes there is. And system32 = over 3000 files while the my problem folder only 500. Moreover, when the same folder was opened on a Win 7 PC with no problem.

The size of the files in system32 are miniscule.
