Hi,

Not that I know of. Those are the optimisations I do on Windows.

All the best

Steve, in Windows 7, thumbnails and the preview pane have been disabled already but he still gets the problem 5 or 6 times out of 10 times using explorer, sometimes the task manager, and sometimes browsers and other programs. is there other things he can do to lessen the occurances of this problem?

Hi,

For Windows 7 especially, go into Explorer and disable thumbnails and the preview pane. You will find not only will it reduce these problems, but accessing files is much speedier.

All the best

"Not Responding" errors are, by their very nature, mysterious. If a shutdown/restart cycle clears them, and is not needed on a very frequent basis, that is my suggested fix. I get "not responding" not infrequently, particularly with web browsers, but sometimes with task manager and file explorer (Windows Explorer in 7 and earlier).

If it's really, really frequent, then something's likely amiss with Windows itself and repairs to Windows should be done in an attempt to fix it.
