One things always annoying is how long XP takes to 'show' a USB drive in Explorer when that drive has 10-20 Zip files on it. I think this is to do with XP being able to 'see' inside zip files and also able to display the contents in explorer as if they were in sub-directories. So the first time I try to explore a USB drive, Windows spends a long time internally uncompressing those files. I want to stop this. I want zip files to just show as zip files and not to be processed in any way whatever by windows - I've got Winzip for that. Hopefully that would speed explorer up greatly. Anybody know if there is a setting or registry tweak for this?
