Windows 7: Windows explorer lag driving me insane

23 Nov 2009   #41

Win 7 Home retail


Thank you very much to IgorNg and cerveaupro. I had disabled KIS2010 and it had made no difference but uninstalling it has returned Explorer to normal (instant) speeds, and reduced Word and Outlook editing to 1-5% CPU utlisation from the 50% utilisation with KIS installed. No, i cannot explain the last phenomenom (what has KIS got to do with editing documents?). I am delighted to have solved this problem but annoyed that i had got the full version of KIS2010 and will now have to spend a load more money to get a good quality alternative.

Thanks also to Mrsdoyle for her (am assuming a her!) continued interest in helping me. You are all brilliant!

According to others with this problem, it appears to work although for how long i dont know...
