So, vista is taking about 15 minutes to open files. It used to be that explorer just froze and then I would have to relaunch it. But everything takes forever to open now, just about. Firefox and some other programs open fine on startup, but when I try to open even a text file, it takes a few minutes. Instead of freezing explorer, now it just freezes with the loading cursor up for a while, and 15-20minutes later, the program will open... Why?? Also, the particular program I'm trying to open is an installer program, so it needs 'permission' from me to open it...might this have something to do with it?
