I started having alot of virus warnings from Avast - so many so that I reinstalled via ghost.
Now windows explorer is extremely slow when transferring files. It runs the cpu up to 100 -
I also have 3 mapped network drives, all to one other computer. I recently removed a drive from the other computer.
When I tried to delete the mapped drive I found there is no option under Tools. There's just Synchronize and Folder Options.
I'm guessing Explorer is slow because it's trying to find the missing drive.
I tried the 'net use y: /delete' - no luck.
Also the right click for the menu doesn't work on the task bar. Searched long with no luck for some registry or system settings.
I have admin rights so I don't think it's a group policy thing.
Any help is appreciated.
