Am sorry but I don't really know what this feature is called. I'll describe it the best way I can. Here's the scenario: While opening a folder with alot of Avi, mp3 files, the windows explorer address bar gets a highlight or like a loading bar scrolling until it is filled up, as that bar progresses, it takes a while to show all the folders and files inside that directory. Is there a way to optimize that or disable that show that it'll speed up displaying the contents of that specific folder? I'm sorry wasn't able to describe it properly, but I did the best I can.. Plus I don't know what name of the feature it is so I wasn't able to get a good google result... Hope some advanced vista users here give me some tips/advice/opinion. Thanks, Psyk~ EDIT: oh another quick question, how come it also randomly stops using the minimize and maximize, windows animation effects?
