    I just reformatted and everything seems to be in order, but for some reason, on a particular drive, every time I try to access a folder on that drive or exit from a folder after a certain time, the folder window freezes and I have to restart explorer.

    However, after restarting explorer, for a while the folders are easily accessible--but after about 3 minutes, the folders freeze again.

    I'm wondering if it's my drive or if it's Windows, since I recently ran the Neowin uxtheme.dll patcher.

    Naw, I've got 2 x 512MB sticks of DDR 400 Crucial. The problem only seems to affect a series of folders under a certain directory on one drive. The rest of the folders on the drive are perfectly fine.
