Windows 7: delay when opening folders on custom toolbar

delay when opening folders on custom toolbar

On my Windows 7 taskbar, I have a custom toolbar linking to my mp3s folder (located in my secondary D drive), which contains approximately 20 folders. When I click the '>' next to any folder, there's a weird delay, it shows a very small grey rectangular bar for up to second or 1.5 seconds (apparently depending on the size of the folder) then it displays the folder's contents. (I've tried to take a screenshot of this without success.) If I go back to the folder that's previously given me the bar shape, it opens immediately, but only until I close (mouse away from) the toolbar. It's driving me a bit crazy, I don't mind admitting. Thanks in advance for any help.
