Very slow My Computer icon

By jsarinana ·
When I double click on the My Computer icon on my desktop it takes about 2 minutes to open. This only happens the first time I open My Computer after turning on the computer. After the first time it only takes a couple of seconds. But when I shutdown and restart it happens again
Any suggestions ?

Create a new shortcut for My Computer and place the following string in the Target area:

%windir%\explorer.exe /e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Ann777 how do you create this type of shortcut on your desktop ?
Should it replace my original My Computer Icon on my desktop ?

Do you have any anti-virus software on the PC AND, if so, is it set to scan on RUN. If so, turn that setting off!
