File Open or Choose File dialog hangs application after selection made
Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit
Intel i5 CPU @2.67 GHz
8 GB RAM
This problem just started recently or I only noticed it in the past week or so. When I'm in any application that launches the File Open dialog, including any browser's "Select File/Browse" button to choose a local file, when I select a file (even a small 1K file) from the dialog and the dialog closes, there is a 5 - 10 second delay before the app responds and either opens the file or in the case of a browser, displays the file name. In those 5-10 seconds, the app is non-responsive. In a browser, other fields on the form cannot be clicked or selected for the 5-10 second period -- then the selected filename appears on the form.
This happens in all 4 browsers I tried: Chrome 32, IE 11, Firefox 26, and Safari.
I also booted Windows in safe mode and the problem still occurred.
I also ran KingSoft Office Writer and selected File->Open and the same issue occurs after selecting the file -- there is a noticeable delay that wasn't previously there.
In a code editor (PSPad), opening a file does the same thing as well (hangs for several seconds after selecting the file).
Randomly during testing, (but probably < ~5% of the time) it doesn't delay and works properly.
I ran System File Checker and MS Security Essentials, but both turned up a clean machine.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this lately?
