Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I have the following Windows XP problem, which started appearing several months ago: When I click on a folder it takes a very long time to open. For example, today I actually encountered a situation when the time between the doubleclick on a folder icon and its opening was more than 2 minutes. I might add that when I type "explorer
It might be too early to tell if by just cleaning the registry solved that issue you had earlier but cleaning the registry in general helps in better performance and fix error messages. Having no info about what its really fixing your best bet is to monitor it for a while and make notes when it does happen again.If it does happen again to run the registry cleaner and see if solves it again. It could also have been a missing or invalid references associated with the folder that the registry was able to clean up.

When I reported the problem some folders took up to 2 minutes to open. At this time they open normally. The only thing that could conceivable have influenced open folder time is a registry cleanup that I performed. However, I am not sure it was that did the trick.

i) Click on start button------>Select the option Control Panel ------>Select Printers and Other Hardware--->
----->Select Mouse----->Mouse Properties window appear-----> highlight or click Buttons Tab on the top
-----> locate Double Click speed(in middle) and try move slide bar towards extreme right(towards Fast),
now click apply and ok.....see the difference, if not try next one...........
ii) How much is ur RAM capacity(i would suggest > 1 GB RAM), if ur RAM something like 512 or 256 MB then you have to upgrade it to 1GB since you may face these problem with less RAM.....
if you are running more no of application on a lower RAM it will take some time open any application or even something like opening a folder......
if you have good of RAM, then try the next step...
iv) you can even apply single click option to make folders open faster
Open My Computer ------> Select Tools option on top-----> Select Folder option ----> Select General Tab------> check single-click to open an item and then click apply and ok......
iii) sometimes it may be due to virus,spyware present in ur system so, i would suggest to install a good antrivirus, spyware software such as Bit Defender, Norton, AVG,......
