Windows 7: SLOW loading folder

SLOW loading folder

I know this topic had been posted hundreds of time, but i wonder if there is a new way t solve the LAG of loading folders?, it takes me around 10 to 30 minutes every time i open that folder to get fully loaded, and that is not the BAD issue, what is bad, when i go to another folder(inside of the folder), it starts to load again, and the worst part is when i go back to the previous folder it starts to F@$@#$@ load again, IDK what the hell is going on with windows 7.

Also the green bar when it reaches around 95%, it stops and it takes around 5 to 10 minutes to finish loading it.

I tried doing all the "OLD" solutions (indexing, property>customize, etc), but no luck at all.

System> Intel core i7, 15 g ram, 2g video

Hope someone can help me out, i have this issue for years, haven't found a right solution yet, i do not know if the developers are aware of this issue(i do believe they know about it LOL) or they just don't care fixing it, I just i don't know.

What's in the folder tree? Thousands of images? Do you have thumbmails on?

You might check into rearranging the folder tree into smaller trees with fewer total files in each tree.
Or if something else is going on please give some details about the nature of the files and the total number of files in the tree.

Also some hw info would be helpful. Esp. how much ram etc..
It saves asking dozens of questions by filling in the form.

Sometimes a corrupt file such as a video/pic can cause issues.
What kind of files are in the folder?
You should fill in your system specs.
"15 g ram" sounds 'unusual' - did you mean 16 GB RAM?

And how did you use the customizing solution? Try setting the folder properties to "general" if you haven't already tried that.
