Windows 7: File properties loading for too long

20 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
File properties loading for too long

When I right click on file or even a folder and click on properties, it takes around 8-15 seconds to load it. This sometimes doesnīt happen, mostly when I use a computer for a while. I have a geniune version of Widnows and no viruses at all.

Hello and welcome gainerius ok mate first up I would try these in safe mode if you haven't already

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

if no go then these

SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Malwarebytes | Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
AdwCleaner Download
ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

- Remenber no AV is infallible and you will be surprised at what rubbish is hiding in the machine

I would even suggest you use this too as most members do CCleaner - Free Download - Piriform

You can use CCleaner to clean the rubbish off the machine Piriform - 404 see this tutorial CCleaner - Delete Junk Files
just be aware that when you run the Analyse go to Options > cookies and save to the right hand list the cookies that are used for sites you have passwords for or else you will be forever having to login again.
Another way to clean rubbish is to go to Computer > C: drive > Properties > disk clean > that will then run and give you an option of further cleaning up Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

thank you for your response, but...
I tried all your proposed options and none of them worked for me. Usually I really take care about new instalations and my antivirus/anitmallware(smart security) is also doing the job pretty well, I think.
-I tried SFC with no result, but at the end there was a message, that there are some files, that are corruptet, but the programme was not able to fix them.
-CC cleaner, Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Superantispyware didnīt work as well, they found some corrupted files, but nothing important.
-I runned the diskcheck as well with no result.

I would also like to add, that I had some issues with wuauserv service (windows update). It consumed 100% load of one thread and around 250 MB of memory. I menaged to delete WU agent KB3102810 and then succeeded to install some new updates. It solved the problem for now and my system is up to date. Before that I was trying to disable some functions of WU because of annoying W10 offers, so perhaps there was the problem. But I donīt see any connection with properties of files loading for so long.
