Windows 7: Windows Explorer extremely slow

Windows 7 Professional X64
Windows Explorer extremely slow

When I open windows explorer it takes forever to load up. When I first open it it shows favorites and desktop with a magnifying glass over each icon spinning. The green bar gets to the middle of the X and then basically stops. What can I do to fix this?
Thanks, Debbie
