Problems searching for, renaming or deleting files in windows expl

    When I try to search for a file in windows explorer, the window stops
    responding after I have typed the first letter of the search name.

    When I attempt to delete a file a window appears saying "Calculating time
    remaining" this just hangs; attempting to close the message window causes a
    message "cancelling" to occur in the message window but it continues to hang.
    The explorer window becomes unresponsive.

    When I attempt to rename a file I get a similar problem.

    For each of the three problems I need to go to Windows Task Manager to close
    the unresponsive explorer window.

    I have been running Vista Home Premium for about 2 months but this problem
    only appeared a couple of days ago. I have attempted to solve it using
    system restores going back as far as it will allow me - but no joy.

    Any ideas, anybody?

    I have the same problem with Vista Ultimate. I have installed Acronis True Image a week ago, can this have caused the problem? Or something to do with google desktop, I deinstalled it after hangs in indexing. Also my Outlook 2007 is only starting up in safe mode!
    Anybody has a solution?
