Windows 7: slow file reads

19 Dec 2010   #1

windows 7 home premium 64 bit
slow file reads

Reading files is incredibly slow on my thinkpad x301 with win 7 64bit. Accessing files through the library or through individual programs ( i.e. word, excel) is extremely slow, i.e. 40 seconds. Yet when I access files through my personal system folder via favorites/desktop, reads are instant.

Anyone know whats going on? Could it be the SSD I installed. Even within Library I can access video and music files instantly, but documents and pictures are accessed at a snails pace.
