Windows 7: "My Computer"/"Computer" slow load problem

25 Oct 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit


I have this same problem and it's killing me. System restore only goes back to yesterday so that solution is dead. I've done every sort of hard drive, ram and cpu test I can think of. I have done everything. Now I came across this thread and I followed the process explorer instructions. My problem does indeed lie within explorer. exe, although the thread which bugs out varies from time to time. I have saved all the information and will post it below. Please help! Only "Computer" opens up slow or when I try to save something from a web site. All other programs and browsing are lightning fast. It's killing me. Whenever I open up Computer it takes up 12.5% of processing power and just hangs there for about 10-15 seconds before opening up. I did take a full dump as suggested above but the file size is too large for me to send in for review. I tried opening my computer 10-15 times and these threads/call stacks were the ones that kept popping up to the top or sharing 6% and 6%.

Thanks in advance for any help,
