Default icons on drive.....

whenever i open up my drives, it always goes thru the rows and changes the icons to what they are suppose to be. at first they are just a lil box then like refreshes to the actual icon its suppose to be. why does it do this everytime? a fix?

your computer just sounds slow. as for a fix, try more ram

My PC:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
512 MB 2700 (Soon to be 1gb PC 3200)
ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (Soon to be ATI Radeon AIW 9800 Pro)

if it's win2k or XP, run a checkdisk. The problem is with file indexing on the system. It needs to be cleaned up. SHould clean up the icon files. Also, are you viewing them as thumbnails? if so swith to a list or detail view.
