    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

    Any help?

    you empty the deleted items (or wastebasket or whatever its called in

    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?


    (/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?)
