date sorting in windows explorer slow
I just wanted to share a fix I have for a problem I was experiencing with windows explorer.
The problem is clicking on a directory with a bunch of files in it (that has been set to sort by date as default) is painfully slow , like 3 or 4 secs. If the directory is set to sort alphabetically then every thing is ok.
after much pain I found the problem to be down to my anti-virus solution, I was using Panda cloud anti-virus. Once uninstalled the problem is removed. clicking on the same directory opens it instantaneously. hope this saves someone from the same frustration I had.
