Vista explorer file delete now hangs up computer

By ipodaddict ·
This weekend I noticed that trying to delete a file from a jump drive caused Explorer to hang. When I got to work, I also had problems adding a subdirectory on my server. After using Task Manager to cancel out a few times, I noticed that about half the files in the directory I was trying to add to were now gone. Did a search from the server, no files. I KNOW that they are there, but can't find them in any of the programs I've tried (Filezilla, Explorer, AutoCAD). So, have copied all the remaining files to another folder, no problem. Now, however, any file I try to delete hangs Explorer at the "calculating time remaining". I had to reboot the last time as even Task Manager couldn't get Explorer to close. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
