While you should run the parasite scans, don't you think it odd that to turn on DMA you must turn it off and back on?
whenever i go into a folder with more than 5 .jpgs, the whole folder slows way down. once it comes back to life, i can swithc it to show details, but at first, it always automatically shows thumbnails or filmstrip, and takes about 5-10 seconds to load the folder. During that time, i can't scroll, change the display type, or even see any files.
The rest of my computer works great, but for some reason, .jpg folders go nuts on my machine.
My machine is a Dell 8200 Dimension, with a P4 2.8Ghz and 1 GB of RAM. Nvidia FX 5200 with 128 MB video card.
So, I shouldn't be having any problems viewing 10 jpegs... Any thoughts? Also, I've run Adaware SE as well as Spybot and it hasn't helped.
