Windows 7: Games Start Menu Hang

Windows 7 Beta 1 b7000
Games Start Menu Hang

Does anyone else's explorer hang for a really long time while it loads the icons in Games Explorer, or when you expand the Games section in the Start Menu? I'm trying to see if it's a game's icon that I've installed that's causing my hang, or if it's one of the included games' icons.

Yes, I also seem to be having this problem. You should send in some feedback to Microsoft so they know that there is more than one person having the same problem.
