  1. what would cause this to happen
    click on desktop SC hourglass comes up goes away sometimes stays up for awhile then goes away
    right click open with same thing
    go to the folder I can open ,but takes to long
    this is the only folder or shortcut doing this
    this started about a week ago

    Have you tried deleting the shortcut and making a new one?

    Is this a native windows app or a 16bit app?

    Yep did it twice
    you know I don't know assume is is 32bit
    it is a .conf file for my apache server as I am always setup new things and navigating to it is slower I made shortcut used to work fine and bout week ago it started freezing up. I use notepad to edit now I think that may be the problem ,but I don't know what else to use ,word is out of question.
