Windows 7: Laggy Explorer?

Laggy Explorer?

I have just recently witness that when ever i open up explorer, the left side bar is always loading..... forever. Favorites, Library, Homegroup and computer never have anything below them. Just the little loading circle. So i cant access my files on my other hard drives. This randomly happens, but when i open, lets say sony vegas and click the open files there, the list opens fine. Anyone else have this problem too?
