Well, this is weird.. I've also had an issue with Chrome not performing so well, and noticed that it was "waiting for cache" all the time, causing pages to loads slowly. So I went on and deleted the cache folder, which suddenly greatly affected performance of explorer in a positive way. Go figure :S

Nope, not what I can recall.

Someone else posted a similar article on a Microsoft site and found out that by disabling the Search Indexing feature did the trick. Here is link on how to disable this feature.
