To The Experts: Most of the times, when I open "Explorer" ("My Computer") to a file which contains a large number of icons, it takes a very long time for the "DOS"(square, blue and white........looks like a TV set) version of the icons, to change over to the more colorful windows icon, during which time, the hard drive is hard at work, and making the characteristic "rumbling" noise which means that it's searching frantically......with the red "drive activity" light on. Later, when I close the "Explorer"("My Computer") box, the same thing happens to all of the icons on my desktop, with the accompanying cacaphony from the hard drive. This generally happens only ONCE (the first time) on each reboot. If I open "task manager" during these episodes, I can see "CPU usage" spike to near 100% . This is very annoying, and slows me down considerably. What's causing it, and what's the fix. Please excuse my ignorance, and if you need more info in order to answer my question, then please ask. Thanks in advance. Joe
