Vista: "Calculating time remaining" takes long time on any fileaction. Even with all suggested KB patches installed

I know that this "Calculating time remaining" is well known but the
problem is that even the infamous KB patches (KB938979 / 931770) do
not help.

I use Vista Business x86 and deleting, moving and even renaming files
take more than a minute, even if they are on the local disk and if
<10KB.

Any help?

Peter

Don't know about moving or renaming, but regarding deleting does it help if
you empty the deleted items (or wastebasket or whatever its called in
Vista)?

Peculiar. I have a 10 years + old 166MHz Pentium I with 95B and
it takes less than a second to do most of those actions, less
than a tenth of a second for some. I thought newer OS's were
faster and better and well worth the thousands of dollars in
hardware and software upgrades they require?

HAAAAAA HAHAAAARRRR HAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!! (ad lib ad inf)

(/Please/ don't take this personally, I am getting over a flu
and have even less self-control than usual.)

(And yes, I realize this did not even come close to helping.
Well, OTOH, why don't you just upgrade to 95B or 98SE?)
