Directory Opus is slow when refreshing a folder or drive

Every time I click on a drive or folder Directory Opus takes 3-5 seconds to show the contents of the folder/drive. This does not happen if I use Windows Explorer. I have looked through the forum and do not have any software installed that would cause the system to slow down. I must say that since I reinstalled Windows 8 the problem has appeared. It was a clean install.


It's probably a shell extension or antivirus.
