so curious, how much cpu is explorer running. At how much is it idling with no windows open (just the desktop) How much is it idling at when a explorer window is open? Superfetch on?

Try use HDTach, or do some file transfers, to see how fast your hard drive(s) are. Explorer performance is directly related to the speed of the hard drive where the folders are stored, so if your hard drives are slow or bad in some way that will show up in bad explorer performance.

He could also try opening checking it out with the browser. Just write c:\ into opera to see how it performs.

But overall it seems to be imho something with prefetching, or something with miniature previews.

I'd say the main problem is that you're using IE. Even if that isn't why it laggs, you should still use something like Firefox instead or Safari, way better.

All of us here mean Windows Explorer, the file manager. Not Internet Explorer, the web browser. =p
