Workaround / solution - slow copy and delete Windows 7

In Windows Explorer, shift-rightclick a drive or folder, then from context menu, click "open in new process." Go to the new window, and it will behave normally for copying and deleting large and many files. Wish I knew how to automatically open Windows Explorer in a "new process," but this works almost as well.

Add that to the target of a shortcut
(and maybe assign it an OS shortcut key)
And you should have what you wanted.

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /N,::{ceff45ee-c862-41de-aee2-a022c81eda92}
