Windows 7: Computer becomes slow when I get into a folder with 1080p videos and s

Computer becomes slow when I get into a folder with 1080p videos and s

Hello it's me again ^_^


I've downloaded some series in 1080p but when I access the folder, the computer becomes slow, and I can't even delete them, since it will say "Calculating" ; "Recycling" or "Discovering items", when I try to play one of those episodes (.mkv) when I watch it with subtitles my computer lags and the audio stops fitting the image This would be strange if I had a bad computer, mine's not that good , but it should be able to run 1080p videos with any problems and shouldn't become slow! Here are my specifications:

Core 2 Quad Q9550 (in task manager appears "Usage 100%" )
ATI XFX 6850 1gb
4GB DDR2 (I know these aren't the best but it's the most I could afford at the time I bought the motherboard )

EDIT: Also, in the windows explorer navigation bar, a green loading bar appears as soon as I enter the folder, but it never reaches the end When I try to delete it , appart from saying "Recycling" my computer becomes extremely slow if I open the internet explorer window (the small window saying Recycling)the mouse starts lagging and it freezes

Bye and I'd be glad If you helped me

to make that folder more responsive, right click on the folder and go to properties and customize and set it to general items.

How big is the folder?

How many files in it?

How much free spacer on the HD?

It's Explorer scanning all these gigabytes of movie files so it can create thumbnail previews for you. That naturally takes a while, and you might not want to go launching apps or cause further slowdown during the process.

However, it really shouldn't take more than a minute or so, and I'd like to know what's using 100% of your CPU in Task Manager.

Yeah, I thought that at the beginning but it doesn't create thumbnails, even with metafox

Here are some pics I took of the problems I have with those 1080p files and whats using 100% of my CPU

1) Loading, the green bar freezes there, i've left it for an hour and it's on the same place it was when I left home




2) Performance while playing those files (video lags and audio doesn't match video)

3) Folder properties:




4) Task manager while folder loads:



5) Task manager "performance" tab, while folder is 'loading':







Hope it helps , if you need more information just tell me!


Bye bye ^_^

On the righthand side of the H264 TAB, select 'Use FFDshow's codec'

Your task manager screenshot isn't very useful because it shows services, not running processes.
But maybe Shark knows something I don't.

Okay I tried the ffdshow thingy and it worked OK (for what I could check in this 5 minutes xD), it's just in the 64 bit application right?


Also here are the pics, the subtitles are ok and not laggy now, but my computer is still slow when accessing that folder and I don't have thumbnails on those files and on 2 in my desktop Thumbnails are not that important but my computer slowness problem actually is






EDIT: Okay so it has been like 10 minutes since I closed that folder and the CPU usage it's still at 100% I don't know why , it freezes too and mouse lags this has never happened before getting those files



EDIT2: I'll have to reboot my PC for it to stop freezing
