Windows 7: Windows Explorer Problems

Windows Explorer Problems

I'm starting to think this is a problem with Windows, I am running build 7022 x32, and everything works fine, with a few minor things.

Basically when I copy or move files, the prompt will just freeze at 100%. It will stay like that and when I tried to click abort, cancel, etc, my CPU skyrockets to 100%(normally it's 8-30ish), and I have to close the thing with the Task Manager.

I've also tried two other file managers, so I assume it's a problem with Windows 7. I wanted to know if anyone else is having this problem before I report it to M$.

EDIT: I could see how people could think that this is a problem with my computer. I don't think it is, as this never happened on Windows Vista or XP(this is a slightly new computer as well, made in the last 6 months)

You might want to give build 7068 x86 a try. I had somewhat the same problem as you a while ago around when I was on 7022, except not so severe. I'm copying a DVDR9, about 7 GB to test for ya from my system drive to data drive (both WD SATA 150) and the system along with windows itself seems just as responsive as when not.

I can only say good things about the latest builds and have found as the number gets higher, so does the quality. So ya, 7068! Try it.

This problem seems to be more then just copying, deleting, extracting, things like that. I'm backing up things to upgrade atm.
