    Vista home premium.

    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
    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?
