Reasons for Windows® Explorer working slowly in Windows® 7
Why does Windows Explorer work slowly in Windows 7?
Windows 7 is the most modern operating system from Microsoft. Even though Windows 7 has got many superior qualities, it has been noted that the system has a problem of delay while opening Windows Explorer. There may be different reasons behind this problem which can be fixed by the adoption of some thoughtful steps. As an example for its slow nature, if you have a folder full of say 100+ media files including videos and photos and you want to sort them by date in 'Details' view, the computer will think for a few seconds before it actually performs the 'Sort' function. If we return to that folder before restarting your computer, the sorting runs fine. These types of problems need careful attention.
The following points are some of the ways to fix Windows Explorer in Windows 7:
Sluggishness is a problem with computers that is very harmful and people may neglect to use it, as the modern world demands speedy operations in each and every step. The problem of sluggishness may occur because of the confusion or absence of date sorting for files. By the proper application of date sorting, we can open files in less time. Sluggishness may also be caused by the entry of harmful malware into the system.
The symptoms can be explained simply as sluggish operation will take more time to open or edit files. It is generally seen that the initial loading of files takes more time and the restoring mechanism is normal. Interruption or cutting out of information and blinking symptoms are generally seen because of the harmful entry of malware.
In this case even Microsoft cannot find a set of reliable and efficient method of repairing, but it is possible to minimize this sluggishness by taking some preventive measures. Proper date sorting is necessary for all files. Another tip is the installation of security systems such as Norton for the elimination of malware from the system. It is wise to update the system with some authorized security systems. Some fixing tool kits and web acceleration systems are also can be downloaded and applied to the system as an experimental resolution.
