Try to make sure your computer is clean of any infection.

Computer is clean.

I find that Vista and Windows 7 to be real dogs. Given the problems I've had I am looking to an OS that is simpler, cleaner, and more efficient.

At this point the turle slow delete will remain unsolved.

The disk is defragged every week. It is 0% fragmented.

was there any solution to this problem? i have one of my users experiencing it. i don't think it has anything to do with disk fragmentations because when deleting via the Fiel menu > Delete, it is quick, but using the Delete button from the keyboard is ridiculously slow.
