Windows 7: Explorer Refresh Lag

Explorer Refresh Lag

I am moving files around, and renaming other files on one of my partitions (L drive that doesn't have windows on it), and i am noticing that the folders are take a long time to update. Sometime i even click on my computer, and it takes forever for all the drives to show up. Never had this issue before. When i am in the L drive, i see the address bar has a green bar going across showing it is being refreshed, but that takes forever too. I have a defrag program that runs every night, and the RC 7100 is the first build to do this. Can anyone help?
