Angry "My Computer", "send to:", "save in:" Functions slow or freeze computer

My computer either freezes or slows to a crawl when I hit the "my computer" icon, or try to use the "send to:" option under files or when I try to save a file in a different folder other than the one currently displayed in the "save in" feature. Major geeks cured this problem for me in 2004, but I did not save the solution and cannot remember it now. Please help...again!

I use xp pro sp2; intel pentium 4a; 2.66ghz hd (1% left); 512ram

Thanks

Go to the "Search" funtion (along the top in the same row as User CP, FAQ, Members list etc)...click on advanced search...type your name in the "search by user name" then click search now at the bottom..this will bring up your posts...

Hi Gordon

If this link http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;819017 doesnt fix your issue then please do start a new thread ( as this one is from 2006 ) and let us know what Windows version your using and exactly what problem your having?
