Unwanted Auto Scroll on my List.

by forvend / September 11, 2006 7:51 AM PDT

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with windows xp. I have aprox. 10,000 mp3's within 1 folder. When I scroll through the list, within a few minutes the screen will reset(like it is refreshing)and scroll back to the beginning of the list. This happens every time. I do not have any downloading program sending information to that folder so, that is not the issue. It is a RAID drive but, it seemed to never have this problem until the list got so large. Is there a auto refresh in windows xp on a certain amount of files? Or do you have any ideas??

Explorer does that.

Try another file browser that doesn't do that.

I'm not exactly sure on what new file browser to use because I have been using windows since day one. I believe you mean like firefox or mozilla browsers correct? If so, which would you recommend? Also there is no way that I could actually go into windows registry (or whatever) and physically change that option? I would prefer keeping windows if possible since I know my way around it fairly well now.
