All File Dialog Boxes Extremely Slow

Question

In each application such as MyDVD, VideoWave, etc. whenever I select SaveAs, Browse or any file operation it takes several minutes for the dialog to display. After the dialog displays if I navigate to another directory / drive in the dialog, there is again a very long delay. So for example, I'm in Save Production As in VideoWave. First it took forever for the dialog to display. Now after it's displayed if I select a new folder there is again a long delay before the new information displays. It's a similar issue across each application in the suite, with anything to do with file / directory display. Everything else while not fast is not intolerable like this situation is. Almost makes each application unusable to me with having to wait so long for any file directory info to display.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

Perhaps no one else has the old slow computer you do. :rolleyes: I'm not dissing your computer; that was a hint to post your computer specs.

 

What else do you have going on when you are working in any of the applictions?

Doesn't make a difference what is or isn't running. It's a Pentium D 3ghz with 3gb Ram. I run many different applications, some of which can be pretty intensive, and nothing else is slow. If it's the machine then it hates only Roxio. It shouldn't take much to open a file dialog.

Yes, it does matter if you have a lot of different applications running.

 

Go to msconfig, and under the Startup tab, uncheck any of the Roxio programs, running at startup, click Apply, Ok, then reboot. See if it runs any faster.

Yes, I find the file dialog boxes are slow in Creator 2009. I thought they were slow in the last several versions. I suspect they're all Java based, which I've always found to be relatively slow. Of course, my computer isn't any great powerhouse either, but in comparison, the Roxio file/folder selection dialog boxes have seemed sluggish to me.
