Slow opening look in combobox

By hamworthy ·
The problem happens when in any application on win2k pro and clicking file open. When you then click on the lookin combobox to bring up the drives, there can be a delay of up to 10 seconds.

The doesn't happen all the time, only if Windows Explorer is not used for as little as ten minutes.

It sounds like a powermanagement problem but as far as I can see I have disabled powermanagement on the Harddisks and network card.

I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem or even an answer.

What other programs do you having running in background?

It could be that cache is being overwritten with current program activities and that explorer must rewrite the cache when it has not been opened for a little while.

You might want tosetup offline caching if this is for shares:

Anna777 is correct about the cache. The CD-Rom/DVD drives take the longest to get scanned by Explorer. The more you have, the longer it takes(unless they are all empty).
